Folding Under Pressure

Yale School of Architecture, Fall 2013

Critic: Brennan Buck

By imposing a rigid triangular grid on a minimal and slopped site, folding planes push into and pull away from the slope along intersecting grid lines, creating interactive yet discrete spaces. In plan, the lines of folding as well as complete detachment align with the original triangular grid, yet, in material realization, the folding planes break from the two dimensional slope to create a dynamic understanding of planes, volume, solid, and void.
