Case study o fold
Also, I learnt that different problems have different solutions especially when it has to do with building connections.
The structure of the project grows from a luid shape which connects the Zeil. The Geometry created is a simple form Mountain which can be designed using any type of Valley material such as paper, cardboard, timber, Cut aluminium sheet, thin steel reinforced con- cret, steel and metal.
The openings at bothsides allows ventila- tion and light into the space. The Geometry created is a translational symmetry fold which can be designed us- ing any type of material such as paper, cardboard, timber, aluminium sheet, steel, metal and thin steel reinforced concrete.
Folded plate concrete
The corrugated shape irregularity allows light to be transmitted and relected in dif- ferent angles. Mountain Valley Cut P1. Also, I learnt that different problems have different solutions especially when it has to do with building connections. It can span large areas because of its rigidity and strength. The structural performance of this building is its stiffness created by the arch form. Fig 2e: Paper fold exploration of a radial folded plate showing the force distribution. Fig 17a: Cut section of a cellular vault. This type of fold is known as linear folded plate structure which can be used as a folded plate surface. I found the design process of the group work interesting be- cause it was the irst time for me learning and using a 3D software in tessellatting a component that could potentially be a building form or element. Howard, , The Wytch Farm oil field, Dorset; pp. The arch structure allows light into the space through the rectangular glass prism inserted into the perforations. Fig 15e: Paper fold exploration of the component showing the direction of forces and openings.
As the work progressed the Overall, this project has been very interesting all the way from the initial origami folding to creating component shape kept changing because we observed that the joint was a major setback for our proposed structures and forms that are likely to be built.
The valley folds of this component allows harvesting of rainwater if fold is used as a ceiling surface.
The mountain - valley folds cre- ated are formed in a semi-circular form where the centre of the circle was cut to create an opening. Fig 17b: Perspective view of a circular vault. The subdivision produces differrent degree of folding such that it transmit an affect of cellularity and ribbing. The structural capacity of this component is strong because the arch forming whic the Fig 19a: Single Component of the vault system. During the group process I discovered and observed the various characteristics of materials when folded such as the workability, strength, malleability, toughness, durability, ductility and weldability. The site boundary informed the compres- sional structure of the roof system. Marketing—United States—Case studies. Glulam is especially suited for use in the load bear- ing structures of buildings where architec- tural beauty is being sought in structurally challenging designs.
The component is lexible and the lex- ibility of the component is in the number of surface subdivisions. This material helped in utilizing the spatial performance of the structure and also reducing waste of the material.
The openings at bothsides allows light into the space. Hobson eds. The bending stiffness approaches zero at the apex and at the support.
Barton, and S. The structural capacity of this component is strong because the arch forming the bays provides support for the vault along its span. This system can be built on site and also can be prefabricated and assembled in smaller units.
