Rasmus Svingel shared with us a movie of a model he put together, part of his current work at Aarhus School of Architecture in Denmark. It’s an investigation of space and program diversity through movement. The model arose from a digital model that were processed into an anolog structure.
The concept is a structure which, depending on needs, climate, etc. can unfold and contract. The model consists of unhardened metal rods that are soldered together and then covered with coarse paper. The moving joints are made by the use of brass tubings. The movement is controlled by pulling carbon wires after which rubber bands resets the entire operation back to the starting position.
