THE SWARM, a sculptural pavilion at the TU Munich


THE SWARM is a parametrical designed (Rhino, Grasshopper), free-standing, sculptural pavilion. It develops its form from the theme of a flying flock of birds. By joining 211 individual, CNC-milled modules the result is a play of density, light and shadow. The focus is yet on the characteristic features of a swarm of birds. The curve gives the pavilion the dynamic of a passing flock of birds which streaks the ground only for a glimpse and moves upwards to the sky in its next movement. At a second glance a complex system reveals itself, which is the base for the connection of the individual parts and the entire shape.

The vernissage took place on 29 March 2012 at the TU Munich.
