We began by exploring the flows on site by supposing that the movement of people could be approached as the movement of particles in an electric field. We placed a number of positive and negative charges on site and run an electric field simulation software to explore several flow configurations.
Once we found a configuration that seemed to work with the program of a35 m2 pavilion, we built a 3d space envelope of that field. We then cut the envelope in 35 horizontalslices and 50 vertical fuses, obtaining a series of surfaces with a precise geometry. We kept the horizontal surfaces as continuous layers, while the vertical ones were reduced to connection elements between horizontal layers.
We then worked on the shape of the single 18 mm plywood laser cut elements in order to obtain a structure that could work as a 3d puzzle with no need of screws or any other external joint. A pavilion tomography optimized on the dimensions of the 18mm panels allows to reduce material waste.
