1. In Collaboration with Andrew Gardner & Eric Hull
    PennDesign _ Spring 2014 _ Independent Study with Mohamad Al Khayer

    The work set out to investigate five main goals: Scalability of system, asymmetric and irregular folding patterns, material construction and fabrication, potential to create, append, and manipulate space through folding, all while maintaining a single degree of freedom.

    Appended Space explores the scaling and fabricating of an architectural scale proposal, utilizing the principles explored in our earlier work.

    Each panel is constructed of two sides of 1" extruded polystyrene foam, hot-wire cut to create butt and miter edges. The panels are resin coated and sandwiched on either side of a fiberglass mesh membrane acting as a hinge. On each 8'x8' wall, a single 100lb linear actuator controls the folding and unfolding of the system.

  2. Master of Architecture Candidate Michael Kipfer produced a video documenting how new digital tools are allowing PennDesign students to experiment and investigate the ways in which we conceptualize, design, and fabricate architecture. Narrated by fellow students Kelly Berger and Kordae Henry, the video coincides with a larger discussion around contemporary generative design at The New Normal, a symposium organized by the Post-Professional Design (PPD) Program in Architecture under the direction of Winka Dubbeldam, Professor and Chair.
