An Architectural installation for the Riyadh Retrospective Series titled Decoded 1.0. The series is sponsored by ICEDB a Saudi urban development company. The Installation was design in Rhino 3D w/ Grasshopper plugin parametrically and fabricated locally using lazer cutting with manual labor assembly. The installation was designed to demonstrate the benefits of parametric design and the use of reclaimed building materials while utilizing digital fabrication methods. The speed of digi-fab was demonstrated also to the participating students, given the time from start of design to completion of construction was 2 weeks total. The installation is made fully of reclaimed steel sheet metal and utilizes a hexogonal geometric sequence to generate 3 dimensional modules which were assembled together by accretion to accomplish the overall form of the installation. The installation responds to the anticipated visitor circulation paths, ceiling heights, and other physical parameters in the gallery space.
