Tex Fab Competition

Analyzing a spheroid as the origin form, I developed a series of scripts that created rail structure, tensile cables, struts and a compression ring that pushed a variable distance on a stretched skin.

Summary

TexFab 2.0, The Repeat Competition, was based on the research and proposal of a self stable fabricated assemblage. Universal Joint hired me to conceptualize, develop and detail a geometric form and structure based on parametric controls. Analyzing a spheroid as the origin form, I developed a series of scripts that created rail structure, tensile cables, struts and a compression ring that pushed a variable distance on a stretched skin. All parts of the assemblage were developed in a referential relationship through a family of scripting components written in Rhino Grasshopper.

Materials were studied and rendered to understand their structural and aesthetic qualities.
We used a range of programmatic tools to develop the form and structure that worked successfully together.
Using parametrics a range of options were able to be quickly analyzed.
Final renderings were created to show the project as a fully realized product.
