S'14 JIW Studio: Dalma Foldesi

The objective of the studio was to propose a design for a temporary pavilion at the old "Dinky Station" -- the gateway to Princeton University's new Arts and Transit Project that is currently being constructed. Our method was precedent analysis: more specifically, I had to focus on Daniel Libeskind's Serpentine Pavilion (18 Turns), abstract its fundamental structural / aesthetic / technological / ontological / social principles, and use this abstraction to inform my design. My proposal engaged with the original idea of a single, foldable surface and elevated it to a more genuine design conception where the folded surface is indeed continuous, the pavilion temporary and sustainable, yet the intervention [ via the pattern ] maximal.
