Under Magnitude, the most recent permanent structure from MARC FORNES / THEVERYMANY, evolves the studio's invention of a topological-walking stripe-based material…

"The Origin of Stripes" -- a 2min video on the making off and principles relying behind THEVERYMANY's #UnderMagnitude permanent structure in Orlando.
#TangentialContinuity: continuous skin along direction of forces, connected by tangential overlaps (as opposed to ribs, tabs, folds,...)
#ExtensiveCurvature: maximizing global double curvature to increase structural performance (as demonstrated through the work of the German Architect and Engineer Frei Otto)
#IntensiveCurvature: maximizing double curvature while constraining maximum radii (triggers curling, branching,...)
key premise within the work of THEVERYMANY.
#ShellFromShells: Self-supported structure composed of sub-elements yet made of a single continuous surface.
(an advanced hybrid model between conventional structural systems based on the dichotomy columns-beams and continuous self-supported shells)
