MetaFold

EmTech Design & Build 2017 – 18 addresses the themes of generative design, material computation, and large-scale fabrication and assembly technologies by incorporating 2 research fields:

  • Curved Folding
  • Incremental Sheet Forming

 

The design, development, and construction of a spatial structure made of complex panels / components of sheet metal in the outdoor area of AA has served as the design goal of the research aims. The research field is investigated by focusing on a combination of structural, morphological, and performance-related factors which the final prototype incorporates through material and geometrical differentiation.
