Further development of a gyroid-based pavilion from vacuum-formed styrene, sheets joined with connector shapes, continues. Individual molded units are being scaled to a larger size. Tooling and code for robotic trimming of modules has been developed and extended. “Tattooing” of the styrene surface, using a robotically driven paint brush, has been achieved. Design of tattoo markings is guided by the principle of anamorphic art; viewed from a certain angle, an image or message becomes visible. Various design configurations have been developed for possible site locations. Students will fabricate and erect the pavilion on site.
