B.5. B.2. Case Study Prototypes 1.0 .21Technique Design Computation

To start with, we simply used a clothing fabric to represent the wholeness of the geometry’s skin. However, the outcome is not as what we thought due to the type of cloth we used was too heavy to be moved when there is a wind blow. We later found an alternative to replace it with the much lighter halftransparent table cloth and this resulted in what the effect we would want to see, so that could imagine how the patterning panels would react in according to the wind blow direction.

By looking at this prototype, we observed that the material would have bigger movements if its spanning between the structure is larger. After this, we began to experiment the connections of small panels with one similar material, which is ivory card . Later on, we did experiments with the use of different materials.
