The Parametric Sign Shack is an exploration in curvilinear surfaces constructed of two dimensional panels. A shack will be constructed using recycled street signs and designed with the help of Rhino, Grasshopper, and Python ( Modeling and Scripting Programs ). We will be using the street signs as panels which will make up the curvilinear surface of the structure. The shack will be be lived in for the span of one week as a part of fund raising campaign to support Habitat for Humanity.
The design will turn the prominent fly tower space of the & Davis Performance Hall into a responsive environment. Enhancing the qualities and verticality of the space, the installation will be be in slow and constant change actuated by live weather feed. The project seeks to activate the urban space while raising the awareness of global climate issues.
