Twisted Surface

Currently working on a project for a small restaurant in Ann Arbor. Here are a few studies that continue the explorations into developable surfaces and smart surfaces. At this point it is not clear if we will have the time to explore a dynamic / responsive system or simply develop a restrained surface to create subtle distortions in the ceiling to allow for HVAC and lighting requirements.

Here is a parametric model that looks at using two servo motors to create s simple wave movement.

Simple walkthrough of a static surface illustrating the open and closed conditions of the surface made of sheet metal strips.
