G30 Summer Pavilion Work in Progress 02
This year’s G30 Pavilion will be constructed with a series of components that are made of thin sheets of aluminum cut/weld with robotic fabrications. The welded aluminum sheets are then inflated with high-pressure air, making the components into 3D form.
In addition to material research in computational fabrications, we are experimenting with its assembly system. Instead of putting the components on site piece by piece, all of them are linked together to create a 2D surface first and then lifted with a series of cables to form a 3D shell structure. The assembly process is analogous to the way puppets are performed by a hand.
