LILLA TORG PAVILION
ASEN01: Creative Tools for Architecture
Faculty: Jesper Walgren
Lund University | Lund, Sweden
As a class dedicated to learning Grasshopper 3D, we were tasked to design a pavilion for a plaza space in the city of Malmo, Sweden. A sloping, undulating surface is pierced by a whole field of columns, creating an immersive experience, like a “forest of columns.” Depending on the scale of the model and the frequency of the extrusions, it can become either an object or a pavilion. In the atmospheric/conceptual drawing on the bottom of the left page, the columns are enormous and evoke a new sense of environment. However, in the drawing above it displays an object. Different scales yield different technologies, as one can only use a CNC mill up to a certain size before the task become infeasible, and a new method or technology must be adopted. The process in designing and constructing a pavilion require a constant feedback between the digital and the real, as writing a quick definition in Grasshopper3D may prove to be quite a task when executing in the physical realm.
