Here’s a quick update on stuff I’m doing in GC with panel aperatures. The first animation is an example of changing aperature size based on proximity of a control point. The other images are of a panel component made in GC as two-part system: Laser-Cut plywood panels with 3D printed rubber gaskets holding them together. If all goes well, I’ll be fabricating scale models of these in the next week. Ultimately, the idea is to aggregate different versions of these panels in a building skin (The Solar Decathlon house below), and have them respond to a feedback dynamic as described in the latest abstract. We’ll see if there’s time to do that before the end of the semester.
