The Screen | Sectioning

Arizona State University
Fabricating Information
Fall 2011
Instructor: David Newton
Class Project

In this project, I explroed flat to fat assembly strategy involving interlocking assemblies. Interlocking assemblies commonly have to key aspects: 1. They have a spanning system or system of ribs; 2. They have a notching logic that allows the spans to fit together. Interlocking assemblies by virtue of this tectonic logic lend themselves to applications in product, furniture, and architectural design. In contrast to sectioning, interlocking assemblies have a long tradition in architectural and product design and have been used extensively in prefab applications. In this project we will explore some of this potential through the production of a screen partition which employes a rib and notch logic to create spatial niches, mediate view through the screen, and produce structural stability.
