The video explores the development of a parametric system to control a rigid folding facade.

The rigid folding modules were made with Tomohiro Tachi's 'Free Form Origami" software. The geometries were brought into Processing, and then organized within the Processing script to generate different kinetic sequences.

I used Satoru Sugihara's iGeo Library for the 3D interface, and ControlP5 library to control the geometries through the slider interface.

I will develop a physical kinetic prototype that utilizes an Arduino microcontroller for the kinetic movement.
