Final Tile Tent
This tent structure is intended as a semi-private space for one or two people to talk quietly or operate a personal communication device without interfering too much with the atmosphere of the space it is erected in.
Working from the initial tent gesture and a hexagon based tiling pattern we developed a honey comb like structure. Each cell of the structure is capped with a six sided faceted face that combines with two of its neighbors in a rotating triangle grouping. These faces transform over the structure to create a highly complex and highly ordered geometry that takes a moment to resolve in the observer’s eye. At scale the honeycomb structure has some interesting performance properties including insulation and sound dampening.
