Twisted Enclosure Facade System::||

Group Project Designers: Desireé Edge, Morgan Danner, Rachel Empensado
Year: Spring 2011
Professor: Demetrios Commodromos

The design allowed for a play on a strategy that could be understood in a series of analysis through eight major design principles including light/radiation, motion, temperature, strength, load, pressure, sound, and fluid, to not only understand how forms and materials act, but also how the building systems become an integral part of the enclosure of a building. Through computer modeling, physical modeling, and drafting of the analysis, the design was a life lesson for real life architectural scenarios.
