Adding thickness to the structure requires careful consideration in order stay true to the geometrical logic. First, a hierarchy of member sizes was given to differentiate between the 3 systems – unit, wall, and shading panels. Instinctively these were thickened ‘perpendicularly’ creating orthogonal cross-sections.
However, I realised that to unify the geometry and avoid conflicting section joints, the cross-section must also be angular – and hence take the form of parallelograms.
Three details were modeled to demonstrate the junction types between each element of the system.
