BIG’s unzipped wall for the 2016 Serpentine Gallery Pavilion has been a critic and fan favorite so far this summer. Its simple parametric design has inspired the array of captivating photos and even a virtual model that allows you to adjust the parameters of the structure in your browser window. Now you can play with its design wherever you go, thanks to a new app by Studioclam.
Studioclam created the iPad app as a way of showing an architectural project through interaction rather than static images. Use your fingers to explore the pavilion’s interlocking geometries, learning how the wall has been pulled open to accommodate for a bench and bar. Zoom in on the boxes’ sliding mechanism, or rotate around to capture the structure’s different appearances from different angles. The app walks you through the design process to show the construction of the idea, how it operates, and its relationship with the environment.
