‘Infure’ is an installation proposed on the roof top of the old IaaC building, as part of the Computational design course done in Master of Advanced Architecture 01. In this project we were able to show the impact of different parameters on the model made such as temperature, wind, etc.

In ‘Infure’, meaning Inflate in Japanese, temperature is used as a parameter with respect to which the hexagonal patches would inflate and deflate with the rise and decrease in temperature respectively. This creates an insulation panel thus restricting the temperature rise on the rooftop during summers, making it usable throughout the year.

Formation of Roofing Structure

  1. Site – IaaC Roof – Top

2. Position of the Frame Structure

3. Addition of Expanding Patches

Development of Hexagonal Patches





Steps for Model Making

1. Pipe – Frame work

2. Hexagonal Mesh formation

3. Insertion of Parameters via Kangaroo on model – Mesh one – Upward Motion

4. Insertion of Parameters via Kangaroo on model – Mesh one – Downward Motion

5. Final Convergence with trigger

INFURE” is a project of IAAC, Institute of Advanced Architecture of Catalonia, developed as part of the Computational Design course at the Master in Advanced Architecture program in 2017/18.
