2b Glass Pavilion

USC School of Architecture students just completed a full scale prototype for a glass pavilion this week. 2b is the second year undergrad studio at USC, and the studio agenda focuses on materials, their properties, limitations and effects.

2b Glass Pavilion

The process that led up to the glass pavilion was a succession of exercises.

2b Glass Pavilion

This is a 1:1 prototype for a future glass pavilion, to test the geometry, spatial qualities and fabrication process. Thus glass was substituted for 6mm polycarbonate. In the process the overall geometry was refined, rhino scripts written to generate the folded plate geometry and shop drawings developed to allow fabrication. The final design consisted of over 800 polycarbonate pieces tied together with over 2500 zip ties.
