Abstract

4 colour plates and 1 black and white plates

Historically, pavilions have been a profitable territory for research and innovation in architecture. Cellular Tessellation is a research pavilion developed and implemented for a site at Sydney Harbor in 2014. This project embodied the refinement of techniques to computationally design and fabricate integrated structural and skin envelopes through a file-to-fabrication process, culminating in the production of doubly curved project geometry via panelized construction. The project addresses multiple concerns (gravity, bracing, affect, etc.) with a minimum of assembly. This work is invested in extending the possibilities of architectural practice. The speculative impact of the work advances emerging practice techniques through the output of augmented spatial experiences.
