Fiberglass: Schematic Process

The arrangement of the four module types is defined by a designed height field, which was inserted into Grasshopper to strategize the gradient of the aperture pattern. These inform where the collective form is angled, introducing the folded curvature.

The individual module is a composition of three layers of fiberglass, with a metal washer inserted into six fiberglassed tabs. These composite tabs allow the insertion of a machine screw and nut, which secure a metal connection that subsequently connects to another module. These connections allow the modules to form a rigid grid, further stabilized by rubber washers at each connection.
