TECTONICS

D105 First Year Studio II, Spring 2019

Introducing the concepts of stereotomic and tectonic, students were assigned to create a dynamic, spatial form representing the idea of tectonic. Use wood sticks and metal wire to explore the idea of frame. Explore the idea of plane using paper sheets.

This project uses metal wires and paper planes to create a floating pavilion that spirals overhead. Each piece of wire is bent in the middle to create a clip that holds the paper planes.

Further exploration into the wire joint would strengthen this project. The final model was extremely delicate, so strengthening the joints would clarify the concept of the pavilion. Ideally, the paper planes float in appearance, yet stand on a sturdy wire structure.
