Five examples showing five different realizations of parametric walls (in fact, only half of them have been realized, the others can be considered as wishes or visions). We aim to create a fully operational mocke-up model of a parametric wall, whereby various conditions will be taken into account: relation to environmental conditions (the sooo long discussed and overused input) ,possible interactions with the user or users and functionality.
We have discussed several options to explore the materialization of the final product: while aiming for a reduced budget, optimization in results is a key point of the design. Foam, chipboard and other “quick and dirty” materials could be appropiate for these goals (either to build components themselves or to be applied onto them, operating as molds). Nevertheless we are open to explore several possibilities during future iterations throughout the process.
