Utah cAP | ReThinking BIM | Fall 2012
Russ, Brandon, Rosemary
We sought inspiration for our parametric designs from nature. We found that a leaf had many architectural concepts that we could explore:
-The veins act as structure and circulation.
-The leaf plane acts as form and a container of space.
-The leaf acts as a shading device for its underspace.
These are the principles we considered.
Our final design for the leaf panel applied to a facade. We struggled to decide on a building to which we could apply this system. The opportunities are limitless for the pattern, for the adaptation of the panel, for what determines the angle and rotation of the panel.
