THE POD PROJECT

Sam Mellecker | ARCH 1030 | Spring 2017

 

As a group for the pod project, we chose cardboard as our recyclable material in order to create a modular unit. We created our own mechanism of folded tabs and slits in order to join each piece of cardboard to create the tetrahedron shape. Each module was made up of four diamond shaped pieces that we bent in order to create the dynamic shape. We then stacked the modulers like bricks to make a cave-like structure, which was held together by plastic zip ties.
