Uittreksel

This paper sets out to develop a principle on which a façade element can be deformed in shape. By using a flexible structure with cables, small bars and inflatable tubes, which together form a woven pattern, a 3D freedom of deformability results. The shape of the façade element can be manipulated and deformed in shape at will. By studying the structure of the human skin, a pattern was discovered and translated into a constructive principle. The façade element is capable of single curved and double curved surfaces, both concave as well as convex. Moreover the different elements in the structure are constantly in equilibrium with each other. Through this; great freedom in form is achieved. This principle will create many new possibilities in architectural design.
