Differential growth

Ithaca, New York

Digital growth simulation as spatial and structural study

The pavilion is the result of a study on the Differential Growth of plants and the potential applications of physics-based solvers. Those tools where applied for the generation of a behavior-based form and structure, that when translated architecture, the bio-inspired algorithm assigns unique formal and structural characteristics to the canopy-shaped geometry. It uses 1500 zip ties and 30kg of space graded steel strips. The pavilion took two and a half days to be built and suspended
