Here are some sketches of different privacy screen options I was thinking of. As of now, I’m still not too sure how exactly it will work.
Because the assignment is a children’s privacy screen, I wanted to incorprorate some type of interactive element to it to make it more interesting and playful. This could mean having moving pieces like pieces that flip or pull out.
Another idea follows more of the shape and geometry created from the previous product family project. I would somehow use the diamond shape design to connect pieces (overlapping, notch?).
Crossed star design that intersects among each-other to to make a wall structure. Could potentially radiate from small to big. The design may alter though depending on the probability of success although the general design should still remain with a star pattern.
It is quite difficult to come up with a structure that is repeatable, that is able to support it self and also unique. Images above are some of my current ideas, but I will love to alter them a little bit to make them more innovative.
I managed to get through “In the Library of Form” but haven’t finished “The Blind Watchmaker” – these readings are super interesting and helped me further understand the breadth of Parametrics as an idea. Highly recommend reading!
I used this week to better understand how each piece will have to interact with others in order to create a stable structure. Here we see that each module will have to be able to connect to 4 other pieces: top, left, right, bottom. This iteration does NOT fulfill the 25% opacity in one direction and 75% in the other. This sketch was made in rhino, not grasshopper.
