“WOOF SHADOW” is an apartment building conceptualised by Tarcha Design and located in Tehran. The surface follows origami paper folding technique with tri-dimensional  surfaces/pieces and no cuts. Brick masonry being the key point for choosing this facade gives a pixelated effect when each module is moved in XY-plane. Therefore all elements (bricks) create “light and shade” to change façade into a system where overlapped pieces add texture. Adding parametric factors like surface divisions, movement factor, movement towards attractor surfaces resulted in a number of design options. The design process involves play of brick perforations, patterns which in turn filter light, visual pollution and provide privacy.




Dissimilar design explorations achieved by reversing the domain for movement of bricks.
Transforming the building skin by generating a shift from zero to 500mm in y axis based on attractor boundaries.
