The two dimensional pattern of triangles and diamonds is superimposed onto the overall surface of the pavilion. Points are pushed and pulled to create a series of triangulated pyramids and perforations which vary in scale.

FULL SCALE PROTOTYPE

The system is produced by a series of 8 point cells, each containing four triangulated pyramids. Each set of pyramids can expand

and contract to increase and decrease the porosity of the overall form. Four outer segments of each cell form a faceted connection with the adjacent cells, while the remaining four segments radiate out from the center to meet at a common point. The expandable pyramids and multifaceted connections enable the system to adapt to changes in required structural depth, curvature and porosity.
