10 Ott TRABECULAE PAVILION
Trabeculae Pavilion is a lightweigh architecture that fuses advancements in Additive Manufacturing with bio-inspired computational design.
The project looks into 3D Printing for answers to the emerging problem of scarcity in material resources. The design is based on a computational process that finds inspiration in Nature, specifically in the materialization logics of the trabeculae, the internal cells that form the bone microstructure. From this investigation, custom algorithms have been developed to support the creation of a cellular load-responsive structure with continuous variations in sizing, topology, orientation and section, in order to maximize material efficiency.
