Out of Plane

BY DANIEL VRANA
@ VOL 14 ON NOV 17, 2015

Daniel Vrana
Adjunct Researcher, 
Buffalo School of Architecture and Planning, University at Buffalo
 
The research presented in Daniel Vrana's Out of Plane examines the potential for kinetic expanding geometries to be used as a means of rationalization for complex curvature. Utilizing origami assemblies, a technique of manipulating internal forces acting on individual units is used rather than controlling the system’s form externally, inducing small shifts that inform the larger, global form changes that are able to occur.
