The design is based on a 3-way rib system that is rigid and structurally stable. Pushing the system to its limits was about breaking the rigidity, yet maintaining its structural performance. The result was an organic and fluid structure that responded to the nature of the site.

Modulating the Torus

The torus is divided into radial spirals such that only 13 different panels are required to construct the entire student lounge/workshop space.

An optimization of material is achieved by incorporating what would normally be considered excess during the fabrication process into the overall structural construct of the torus. Wood ribs are used to stabilise the overall structure from live loads. Algor was used to determine the intensity of the wood ribs according to the difference in stress levels.

Articulated Surface

Student Lounge + Workshop Assembly Area

 
Options of surfaces to engage issues of venilation, visibility and privacy
 
 
 
Sections of timber strips are a greater determinant of structural stability than density of the strips along the surface.

 
 
 
Undulating surfaces are first split into strips of even spacing, then the density of the timber strips are varied accordingly
 to achieve evenly distributed lighting levels on the interior space according to ecotecr simulation.
