suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.
Cho CHUNG MAN, WANG Yang, YANG Zhenyuan, & Jaenes BONG: This pavilion should be an icon of the parametric movement in SZU, located at the prime location of the department. It represents an atypical and unusual construction techniques that exhibit the superior technical knowledge through a research and exploration methodology. The pavilion should consider in a holistic manner from conceptual idea to digital modeling until on-site construction.
The pavilion should be planned in such a manner that is feasible, site-specific and possible with the available resources and timeline. Students are expected to lead and propose the actual function of the pavilion so to benefit the general public.
The SZU pavilion is the result of a semester long module collaborated between HKPDA and Shenzhen University. Bending gracefully in the atrium space of SZU, the pavilion lasted a week-long, through a typhoon.
The geometry is generated through kangaroo, a force simulation software, to investigate on a force effective geometry balancing tension and compression. The surface is then textured with parametric component using triangular forces.
