Möbius is a material-morphological experimental construct investigating concepts of continuity and transformation in the landscape. The structure acts as a spatial threshold, or portal of passage in the environment while also producing a sensuous formal experience both in terms of haptic and visual aesthetics. The structure was designed and engineered using advanced parametric modeling technology allowing for study of continuous variation in form with real-time material feedback loops informing aesthetic decisions, the rules of the game as active design collaborators so to speak. The internal plywood structure was fabricated using a Computer Numerically Controlled (CNC) 5-Axis router allowing for efficiency and complexity to converge at protocol. The Corian skin was also CNC fabricated and thermoformed to the internal plywood frame.
