an investigation into the fundamental properties, constraints, and viability of building materials, organice was a concept for a single-occupancy pavilion that could in theory be scaled up to the nth degree.
inspired by buckminster fuller’s geodesic dome, the structure’s design is based on a single four-faced triangulated architectural unit that features compressive and tensile components—20, 40, and 60-inch 3/4” PEX plastic pipes (compressive) connected by a series of 1/8” braided nylon cords (tensile). the horizontal and vertical aggregations follow slightly different construction methods, and the two formulas combined yield a sustainable, self-sufficient spatial system that grows organically.
