As part of the course ARCH 261 – Digital Thinking, the architecture and interior design students developed their own Lucid Polyhedron. The term for this assignment referred to a polyhedral object, used as a lamp, concealing a source of light. Through their design, the student could create an elaborated play of lights and shadows.
By using simple 3d-modeling operations, learned throughout the course, each student designed their own type of Polyhedron with its own unique and intricate openings. The 3D-model was then digitally unfolded into a planar surface, that could be later digitally fabricated in the F-Lab. The final model was cut out of grey cardboard, using a laser cutting machine and folded into its physical polyhedral form
Finally, the students used their mobile phone as a source of light in order to showcase each Lucid Polyhedron´s performance. Enjoy the results!
