“Aperture Cells” a self-supporting component-based partition system constructed out of (3) 1/2” acrylic sheets.
The two components – “jacket” and “aperture” – used in this system are developed to create apartition hybridizing a structural element and a porous skin. The use of parametric modeling software such as Rhino and Grasshopper has allowed us the flexibility to investigate the form of the systemwithout altering the connection assembly already embedded within the design.
This process allowed us to quickly and efficiently transition between a virtual system to a full-scale physical prototype. The prototype shown is fabricated using a CNC mill, plastic bender, and connected using 1/4″ sex bolts.
