This fabrication works with folded steel plate technology as a way of blurring the traditional distinction between structure and skin. Triangulated geometries give the steel skin rigidity, while folded columnar plates give the structure lateral bracing. The geometry is also calculated according to certain optical and anamorphic principles, giving the proposal particular spatial readings from different points of view appearing flat from a certain point of view, while animated from other. Variations in the density of the perforations lighten the steel structure as the geometry unfolds, while allowing the passage of light to the space beneath. These varied strategies are orchestrated and constructed in “seamless and continuous” fashion, underplaying normative tectonic articulations and differentiations.
