Three-dimensional Fence / Salli Architekten - eVolo | Architecture Magazine

Three-dimensional Fence / Salli Architekten - eVolo | Architecture Magazine | [THE COOL STUFF] | Scoop.it

The steel, cocoon-like structure represents a parametrically altered design of a typical fence.

It is fragmentized, as if under the influence of powerful tectonic forces, pulling the initially linear structure in different directions.

Sound was analyzed and transformed into a three dimensional form which informed the overall shape of the building. Inside are housed three performance areas. Radiating from a central foyer the Grand Theater and Playhouse form the bulk of the program to the north. Suspended above the plaza to the south is a multi function theater.

The plywood is stained Baltic Birch with an exterior grade glue, the spacers are polypropylene. It is held together by three steel rods and rotational because of the rubber dowels as shown in the construction drawing. The post-tension steel rods provide a camber for the center of the bench allowing it to rest on two ends. The birch and polypropylene pieces were transferred from baked grasshopper isocurves and points into masterCAM files where they were CNC routed with flip milling. The round-over edges for the polypropylene were done manually on a standing router table.
