Parametric code for a sealed silhouette that simulated the physical movement: after modifying the model to fit the physical measures, more complex inputs can be used.

INFLATABLES

Parametric inflatable system 

Designing an inflatable parametric system constructed by the fabric, the air and the jointed segments that hold them together and restricts the air flow.

The shape transformation is directly manipulated  by the angle of the glueing pattern: a larger angle leads to a higher peak point and vice versa.

Those rules that define the transformation can be modelled into a parametric file that mimics that physical movement and can predict how a design would look in real life given different parameters and joints outline. to achieve a vast range of designs that can be potentially used as architectural modules, soft robotic structures and more.

An intuitive way to understand the pattern of movement is to think of a sequence with triangles and trapeze. The triangles loose their area and the trapeze move towards each other.

A series of physical and methodical experiments allows mapping the connections between the 2D structure and the 3D form transformation.

Taking the single building block and exploring multi forms.
