3D Jewelry Pavilion
Cadlogic Digital Fabrication
‘DIA 3D-Jewelry pavilion’ is a low cost cardboard pavilion parametrically designed to exhibit 20 sets of 3d Printed prototypes jewelry. Printed in plastic. The fabrication process was manually cutting and assembling 215 A0 cardboard sheets to create 215 un-identical components which are the pavilion build from.
The construction process of the ‘DIA 3D-Jewelry pavilion’ was part of CAD logic course in (DIA)Dessau International Architecture Graduate School. The aim was to build a pavilion that would exhibit 20 pieces of 3d-printed jewelrywhich are designed by student of the same course.
The pavilion should be a low cost temporary self-standing structure that can be easily assembled and disassembled,it is designed exhibit the jewelry in the annually campus festival in Dessau
The biggest challenge presented during the conception phase was to bring together two opposing scales. The idea of a pavilion in the main campus street seek large scale for attraction and on the other hand the jewellery exhibition seek a dramatic reduction of it. It was obvious that the pavilion would speak of a certain duality that shows an inviting and exiting character from the exterior and immediately changes once you are inside, providing a sense of seclusion and intimacy.
The materials that were used consist of 215 sheets of 6mm thick cardboard, and for the joint we used plastic zip ties and clippers.
The construction of the units was planned to be digitally fabricated by laser cutting the cardboard sheets but due to the lack of resourcesand the presence of the man-power. The cutting process was done manually using printed paper as a guide for unfolded units. The contribution of 30 students was needed to cut and produce the units in two days.
The assembling process was covered in three hours and revealed the most exciting part of the process, where after two exhausting days everything immediately took a sense of “digital” precision.
