UP ︎CAN PAVILION
KEYWORDS: PARAMETRIC DESIGN; FEM SIMULATION
︎ ︎ ︎
This project combines ordinary food cans, a highly industrialized, standardized good, that is produced in huge quantities every year and ends up in the trash after one time use, with the possibilities of parametric design, that gives us the freedom to design and fabricate unique parts.
This dome-like pavilion is built up from these cans, which are connected through parametrically developed joints.These parts are generated in Grasshopper, where they are also nested and tagged.
The joints depend on two inputs, the angle between two cans and the distance.
The resulting drawings are ready-to-use for a CNC mill, which fabricates all unique joints and tags them for easy-assembly.
The cans are supposed to be collected from the university cafeteria, which uses these kind of products on a daily basis.
