This exercise utilizes the placement of variously sized boxes to demonstrate the use of points in space to create space and communicate an formal concept, such as axial density.

Step 01 | Density A grid was created based on the dimensions of the shapes. Shapes are placed to create density at the focal point.
Step 02.1 | Rotation of Axis 1’x40’ and 1’x30’ shapes are rotated at a 15° angle.
Step 02.2 | Trim New shapes are created from the overlaps of existing geometries to enforce the aspect of the central density

Curves were created in space and utilized in the digital recreation of a folded physical surface. It was then edited to add two extra folds to further the composition of the digital model.

An octahedron was made and transformed to create a cuboctahedron. Exploration of this form began with a study of its unrolling. These explorations later developed into the grouping and building up of a singular, rotational cluster. A cuboctahedron mini-cluster was also subtracted from a cube and a larger cuboctahedron. In later studies, the form was applied to solid and perforated patterns as well as a larger fractal pattern. In the final study of this form, the cuboctahedron was removed or added to a single box, shape by shape, to create a new composition.

A team was created to aid in the fabrication of an updated version of the box subtraction exercise. The softwares, Pepakura and Rhino Nest, were utilized in the fabrication process to bring ease to the formation of tabs and creation of efficient laser cutter file layouts.
