WEEK 6 READING: SURFACES THAT CAN BE BUILT FROM PAPER IN ARCHITECTURAL GEOMETRY Question 1: What are the three elementary types of developable surfaces? Provide a brief description. (Maximum 100 words) The developable surfaces are those that can be mapped in equal proportions. When isometry occurs, the Gaussian curvature is preserved, and the original surface does not deform. It can be seen that there are three basic types of developable surfaces that can be identified, tangents of cylinders, cnees, and spatial curves.

Question 2: Why is the understanding of developable surface critical in the understanding of architectural geometry? Choose one precedent from Research/Precedents tab on LMS as an example for your discussion. (Maximum 100 words) The developable surface provides the basic framework for understanding and building architectural geometry. Their importance lies in their immediate family. They provide a consolidated mathematical product and treat it simply as a curve. From the “Greenhouse� in LMS, the line of the developable surface has been emphatically explain, showing the skeleton frame form. The building shows how geometric dimensions can be easily covered and molded into strict surfaces.

3D PANEL TEST PROTOTYPE & TEMPLATE

This is the expansion diagram of the partial model, and I have divided all the expansion diagrams into classes so that they can be folded and placed on the final work.

This is a partially folded model, which is formed by three basic models.

WEEK 7 READING: DIGITAL FABRICATION Complete your reading before attempting these questions:

Question 1: What is digital fabrication and how does it change the understanding of two dimensional representation? (Maximum 100 words) Digital fabrication is the process of building physical objects using hands. It helps you understand the 2D structure by expanding 3D shapes to give perspective views and then allowing us to refactor them manually. Digital fabrication also gives designers many different ways of inventing things.

Question 2: Suggest two reasons why folding is used extensively in the formal expression of building design? (Maximum 100 words)

Fiestly, folding concept has broken the traditional concept of horizontal/vertical, graphics/site, the relationship between the inner/outer structure, and changed the traditional concept of space, relative to the traditional projection plane as a space to adjust mechanism, folding priority is variable in space and time. Secondly, fold the concept of the restored building on the expressive force of culture and its social role, think fold both historicism reappearing color, what is modern abstract son, is a form of acceptance history and future symbiosis

EXPLORING 3D PANELLING

This is final work in Rhino. The concept of my work is from shape to soft. I used the top part of the model, which was initially pyramidal, with a sharp top, a small opening at the top of the second part, and a large opening at the top of the top, which made it clear to the interior.

UNROLL TEMPLATE OF YOUR FINAL MODEL

This is an expanded graph that is derived from Rhino. I put two or three easily folded models together, and the other unfoldable models unfolded separately.

APPENDIX

I print out the expanded graph and paste it on the ivory card and cut out the outline with the scissors.

Then I used the pen knife to draw the folded marks on the cut outline so that the cardboard could be folded up easily.

Finally, a small model is formed by folding the printed ivory card. 11
