The Perforated Wall, ETH Zurich, 2006
Elective Course
Using digital fabrication methods that do not depend on repetition or a uniform grid, highly differentiated perforated wall elements can be produced. Since it is possible to shape the forms of the cut-outs and reveals of the individual openings, the front and reverse sides of the wall can take on different characters. And depending on the angle at which the holes penetrate the wall, the perspective is steered in a particular direction. Through the differing orientations of several openings, permeable areas are created in the wall, their form and transparency changing continuously and gently along with the movement of the observer. The wall thus gains in visual presence and depth effect.
