Grown out of self-modifying patterns of vectors, based on electro-magnetic fields, Seoussi Pavillion by Biothing is the final act of computational design. The trajectories were computed in plan, via logics of attraction, further lifted through a series of structural micro-arching sections. Additional feature built into script allows for local adaptation to the site in regards to the section – pavilion is implanted into a steep hill.
Six different geometrical systems were used for the design of this pavilion and they are all steaming out of primary trajectories. The plan of the pavilion doesn’t have much in common with the traditional notion of architectural plan drawing – the dynamic blueprint of this piece of art is closer to musical notations – deep ecology of imbedded algorithmic and parametric relationships are the seed for possible materialization procedures and adaptation to the site conditions.
Programming of the views and distribution of lighting and shading in the pavilion is achieved through parametric differentiation of the angle, orientation and the size of the aperture, together with the relationship of metal and glass components within each cell.
Internal cocoon-like spatial fabric is produced by double charged trajectories and system of veils builds up continuous yet highly differentiated interlaced field. There are opportunities for different degrees of cohabitation wrapped in and in-between cocoon’s swirling fibers. Programming and reprogramming different exhibition sequences is understood as series of probabilistic events. One can rearrange the sequences of art pieces by finding spatial opportunities within the labyrinthine fabric.
To commemorate the 9th Annual Skyscraper Competition, eVolo is publishing the Limited Edition Book "eVolo Skyscrapers 2" which is the follow-up to its highly acclaimed book “eVolo Skyscrapers”. The 628-page book examines 150 projects received during the last years of the competition. Only 1000 copies are available worldwide.
