Our Joint & Spine Pavilion is now under construction. The pavilion consists of primary frames and secondary vertical-foldable louvers. The end of each vertical louver is articulated in a Vertebrae fashion which allows for
interlocking of one louver to its neighbor louvers. Thus creating a spine effect. Many physical models were built in parallel tothe digital geometrical model, in order to test the overall and local behavior of the structure. The design of the pavilion was a
dvantaged from nature by mimicking the behavior and performance of spines, joints and bones in human body.
We are thankful to our D&M students for realization of this project and our special thanks goes to our students Emma Viklund, Erik Hidman, Johan Levol and Federico Puggioni who have been working very hard in all stages of the project.
