'Isoropia' at the16th International Architecture Exhibition, la Biennale di Venezia (26 May - 25 Nov. 2018)
Interesting installations at the Danish Pavilion - Theme: Possible Spaces - Sustainable development through collaborative innovations
The installation 'Isoropia' - Greek: meaning balance, equilibrium and stability - is more than 35m long and made of more than 40 custom CNC knitted membranes of up to 7m length. These are set in structural equilibrium with bend glassfibre rods of varying strength. The structure creates a spatial and structural continuum through the Danish Pavilion, forming differentiated outdoor canopy structures on the two outer sides and a vaulted space in the interior. Similar to the spatial expression the structural system morphs from a cablenet system, which prestresses and stabilises the structure to one, which uses tensegrity like compression elements to prestress the knitted membrane.
