M3:Design Competition: Intermediate Critique

Within one week each student had the task to design聽a free standing 鈥淧arametric Paravent鈥. The structure聽had to be made from CNC-produced components that聽connect via a simple, rule based system. Self defined聽external factors would work as parameters to introduce聽variation into the structure. All components should聽be designed according to a system that allows for both聽simple fabrication and setup. The use of additional聽fasteners and materials should be kept to a minimum.The... Read More
