Spatial Efficiency Now: Work from the Polyhedral Structures Laboratory at Penn

 

PSL has been invited to showcase some of the recent research at the Design Philadelphia event starting on October 4th until October 11th at the Cherry Street Pier in Philadelphia. For DesignPhiladelphia 2019, this exhibition brings together some of ongoing design research projects at the Polyhedral Structures Laboratory (PSL) at the University of Pennsylvania Stuart Weitzman School of Design. Each work on display is a unique design response to specific conditions of forces being brought into equilibrium. These examples illustrate an unconventional design method that introduces the inclusion of force equilibrium at the very early stages of design. With this method, a designer can precisely control the geometry of the flow of forces in a three-dimensional space to design architectural structures..

Presented by the Office of the Dean at the Weitzman School.
