Abstract

The research on performative wood is held with great results at RCAT, Oslo School of Architecture and Design and ICD, Universitey of Stuttgart. Our project focused on the material performance of solid wood cut in tangential section with the use of graphical algoritm editor Grasshopper for Rhino and digital fabrication techniques as the design tools. PareSITE: The Environmental Summer Pavilion serves as a prototype to further research on material-environmental interaction of industrialy produced performative screens. The pavilion designed for reSITE festival, is a möbius shaped structure, built from torsed pine wood planks in triangular grid with half cm thin pine wood triangular sheets that provide shadow and evaporate moisture in dry weather. The sheets, cut in a tangential section, interact with humidity by warping themselves, allowing air circulation for the evaporation in arid conditions.
