Animated Systems Design – Interpreting ICD-ITKE Research Pavilion

The project is part of a successful series of research pavilions which showcase the potential of novel design, simulation and fabrication processes in architecture. The project was planned and constructed within one and a half years by students and researchers within a multi-disciplinary team of biologists, paleontologists, architects and engineers. (taken from

The pavilion was chosen as reference to understand the logics between the wires connections and also as a way to change parameters in real time.


The pavilion was represented under the logics of an hexagonal grid system which creates variable openings in it’s boundaries. For the wires, the system was developed with a divide curve function and after that creating lines between this points and shift the list to create tension points between each module.
