Ground Swell

I was trying to find a design that provides shelter and them perfectly with the surrounding greeneries. It was an exploration of a fusion with the surrounding nature, and all critical iterations suggest a built form that imitates natural plant features.

In this design, space is defined by simply surfaces around the circulation line. The idea is to create a semi-enclosed space with the deformed surfaces where people occupy in the pavilion. Here, the ground is manipulated to provide informal seatings. Light is another type of threshold. The design through iterations is based on various surfaces generated from the Pufferfish plugin. The outcome is further divided into grids then further developed with different refined patternations and supporting structures.
