Below Zero: Lake

Collaboration with Faysal Bhuiyan
University of Kansas
Below Zero is a series of project exploring the concept of creating parametric void space under zero plane. This project is also aiming to effort-less fabrication, where all cutting files are generated, labeled, arranged in one click and the fabrication process should error-proof by encoding the assembly information into the components. Here, this specific work (Below Zero: Lake) is a wall instalation where the void space is generated by a series of mathematical curves implemented in Python. Since partition walls in buildings typically follow the standard, that is, flat. This design utilizes the standard flatness to form a “water level” when the work is installed on the wall.
