Ruled Roofs & Pathways

In search of a more sophisticated system that reflects my early design agenda, I have experimented with ways of using a ruled roof surface in conjunction with a circulation pathway across the camp. Initial investigations show there are a variety ways this could implemented, creating either a single gesture or a more broken roofscape.

A more modular roof feels conceptually stronger when considering the infinite possible arrangements of the camp that can be generated from the script. After developing a system to implement this and dictate the way the roof surfaces are generated, below shows four examples derived from different locations, configurations, and possible pathways .

Architectural ‘fun’ can now be had with the exploring the way these structures are designed. What happens when the two systems, pathway and roof intersect? How is this resolved in construction?
