Proposal for a Reconfigurable Tension Field Lattice Pavilion (2014)
** Published in Retrospecta 38 (Yale School of Architecture, 2015)
Adapting the tension field lattice developed in Light Column II for a hexagonal system, the sculpture study is a flat-packed system consisting of two triangular panels joined by the tension field lattice. Using the lattice, the plates may be configured and installed in multiple orientations, creating a variety of spatial and structural forms as shown. Multiple two-panel systems may be attached to each other for further possibilities.
Earlier iterations of the system included a large-scale collapsible hyperbolic paper structure, as shown in the bottom set of images.
