Twist N Turn – Responsive Facade

The second assignment of Computational Design explores animation in Grasshopper by designing a Responsive Facade System.

The idea was to design a facade system which opens and closes depending on the source. To achieve the design,  a building mass made up of boxes was turned and twisted to get a stepped facade. Then, an array of centrally pivoted circular panels were used to animate the building depending on the source.
