We are asked to design and construct a surface through the organization of linear/planar/continuous elements, where we are going to study the structural performance of the surface. We are expected to create a “system” through the repetition and association of the elements and analyze the potential of the materials and the system. The proportions of the surface in xy axis is 1-5 / 2-5 and we are expected to discover the potential of the system we have proposed both in xy and z axis. While designing, I referred to the structural systems covered in the course and design the surface accordingly.
We are asked to analyze the catenary models (particularly Cripta Güell) and understand how they were utilized for form-finding processes and structural studies.We worked in groups of three and discovered the potentials of these models where we will use the same model to study tension and compression conditions in the same model.
