Constructive Geometry Pavilion 2011/12
On its 3rd edition, the course on Constructive Geometry at the Faculty of Architecture of the University of Porto (FAUP), has finally reached the 1:1 scale! For their last assignment of the 2nd semester, 46 students investigated the design of dome structures using computational design processes.
Differently from previous editions, this year goal was to select one solution and build it at full scale using corrugated cardboard. For the selection process, a review was set-up where the groups had to show the mock-up of a building component to inform the general discussion about the design interest, production timeframe, economic feasibility, and structural integrity.
