The Sequential Wall, ETH Zrich, 2008
Elective Course
This project investigates the architectonic and constructive potential of additive digital fabrication in timber construction. We designed a process in which the robot first cut commercially available wooden slats to length and then stacked them in a free arrangement. Such free arrangements allow high-resolution and subtle movements and transitions to be designed, running counter to the modular expression of the stacking. Straight lines flow seamlessly into curved ones, and on the walls surface an interplay is produced between the rhythmic repetition of the directional wooden slats and the fine gradation of their lengths.
