Unit Optimization


Team: Camila Casotti, Jacopo Sartore, John Vogth, Thannapat Yingthanaworapatana | Year: 2009 | Type: Wood Program


The task is to build a wooden frame structure which has a 70x70x210cm free inner space, a platform where to stay and an open access from at least one side. Structural rigidity and architectural expression should deal with lightness and easiness of both manufacturing and transportation.

The idea is to create both a visual pattern, whose elements in fore- and back-ground interplay, and a "light" space, easy to access and to carry by a group of people. This is achieved by composing framed units that display good strength and resilience thanks to a bee hive-like shape and group effect.
