The Sequential Wall

In the follow-up course the students were challanged to integrate the functional requirements to an external timber wall – for example its loadbearing and insulating behaviour as well as its constructive waterproofing – into their designs systems as generative parameters. Functional and formal characteristics were so tightly intertwined that they became mutually dependent. Individual wooden slats that protruded outwards and face down, for example, were used not just as a strongly expressive design element, but also to shield the structural parts from water by channelling it away from the facade, much as pine needles or shingles do.
