VIKING GAME THUNDERDOME CRITIC: Lisa Iwamoto SITE: Berkeley, California An exploration of digital fabrication techniques in collaboration with Christopher DeHenzel, Ileana Acevedo, Bryan Allen, and Roxanne Levy [Team BAMF], the â€˜thunderdomeâ€™ is a shaded space to watch matches of Kubb, a nordic lawn game played by occupants of Wurster hall. The folded plate structural diagram is reinterpreted as a structural skin. Parametric form-finding in Grasshopper, in conjunction with stress/strain analysis using Autodesk ALGOR, enabled us to adequately estimate the structural behavior of the structure prior to assembly.
