Parametric Threshold- Form Idea generation

We started with the form, with the idea of the skin being suspended from the ceiling and attached to the wall/door. I created the basic skeleton of curves in Rhino and took it to grasshopper to loft > mesh > weaverbird. But Ben’s idea of a free standing form, during the class discussion, was interesting and cool and we are working on it. 12gh

ParametricThreshold- Semester Project

Group- Myself and Ajitha.

I came up with this idea of a Parametric Threshold- A THRESHOLD THAT DEFINES THE MOMENT OF TRANSITION. Ajitha’s idea was of parametric skin light clusters. After the class discussion we zeroed down on the Threshold idea.

My inspiration for the pattern on the skin was from the traditional Indian ‘Jali’ system- Latticed screen, usually with an ornamental pattern constructed through the use of calligraphy and geometry. Extensively used in Indian and Mughal Architecture. Untitled-1jali

Design Drivers- Matthias Pliessnig- Seating for manipulation on Grasshopper

The 6 Design drivers that I intended to manipilate were:
– The Number of Horizontal Bands
-The thickness of the band in X axis
-The thickness of the band in Y axis
– The Number of Vertical Bands
-The thickness of the band in X axis
-The thickness of the band in Y axis
