In Collaboration with Andrew Gardner, Ming-Chang Liu and Sam Rosen
This work is an exploration in rigid, folding, plate structures. The project investigates modes of constructing deployable, rigid plate structures while keeping a single degree of freedom within the system. The wall is fully collapsible and actuated at a singular central point to control the entire extents of the folding process. The plates are each constructed of two 3/16" birch panels sandwiching a singular textile membrane that acts as a centralized hinge. Differentiation between beveled and butt ended panel edges determines the systems ridge / valley organization and controls the walls ability to collapse entirely.
