Formal language consists of the selected set of key operations: extrude, twist, intersect, and carve, and a guiding organizational structure: a large cluster of small circles overlaid with larger overlapping circles. By focusing on the system of operational and organizational constraints, various outputs can be achieved. The process of three iterations are documented through layers that show the underlying structure and operations over time.
A rest pavilion for trail users is formed by reinstating common architectural drivers, such as material, scale, and program into the original constraints established in phase 1. The pavilion is made up of the large spheres (from large overlapping circles) that carve into the extruded tubes (extruded from the cluster of small circles) creating spaces for shelter and resting. Removing the “twist” command, allowed the temporary pavilion to be easily constructed, deconstructed, and recycled.
