KINTETIC ARCHITECTURE | 1 WEEK | SPRING 2017 |
This kinetic architectural system is built off of the idea of a door composed of individual revolving slats that opens to the movement of a person approaching it.
The final design takes this door and turns it into a panelized unit of a kinetic facade. Each unit responds indepedently of each other to a person’s height, whether the person is entering or exiting, and the number of people passing through. The axis of rotation is shifted to the middle of the slats so that one module can open in opposite directions at the same time and allows for the facade to respond to these different inputs occuring in close proximity to each other
This is as an act of subversion, using an aesthethic typically associated as brutalist, for an architectural system that must constantly change and move (typically associated with being light-weight). The idea is confusion, for observers to look at this system at work and think - "why would anyone ever do that?"
