INTER.ONE Tools for Architecture

Tools for Architecture is a research unit based at the Architectural Association in London formed by a team of architecture undergraduate students and lead by Space Popular directors Lara Lesmes and Fredrik Hellberg. Work at TFA aims to develop new experience driven design methods.

Building System Assembly

The building system is assembled through stereotomy, a construction method that relies on nothing other than sheer compressive strength.

With physical models (here as illustrations), I tested various edge conditions where the edge was either flush, or employed an irregular geometry to create locks. Ultimately, the best result was garnered from a wave form joint.
