suckerPUNCH: describe your project.
skylar TIBBITS: tesselion is a built project which demonstrates a system of flat panel tessellation derived from complex surfaces to enable ease in constructibility and a directly evolved spatial environment through lighting, programmatic adaptation and structural simplicity. each panel’s uniqueness is afforded by the efficiency of digital fabrication while coded parametric relationships allow an emergent structural efficiency, from a single panel to the complete adaptability of the surface as a whole.
sP: what or who influenced this project?
sT: recently the development of planar quadrilateral meshes has become a strong interest in the architectural community due to their potential ease for constructing complex surfaces. this project responds to this race and develops a system of flat panelization of free form surfaces which proposes large scale, efficient and economic construction from flat sheet material.
