Sheet Metal Screen Wall

As a means to get things started, I am posting an early parametric project that was designed for a gallery installation. Using unrolled surfaces, I developed a wall in which each part would be specific to its location in the assembly. Two surfaces could work to brace one another, giving the system an accumulated rigidity.

The parts spread as they move horizontally and thin as they move vertically.

Another key aspect of this research is in the investigation of material efficient form that can be completely nested on a flat sheet. While this project is not zero waste, one can see the potential of cutting such forms from a flat sheet.
