This course focuses on the development of hybridized, folded meshes that simultaneously serve as both structure and building envelope. Students develop parametrically controlled tessellations and transform them into building component systems that can be built using conventional sheet stock materials. These tessellated systems are extracted from the digital realm and built at full scale.</p>
