Leaf Shelter

Rachel
Designer(s): Christian Butler and Michael Desbarres; Location: Taliesin, Spring Green, Wisconsin; Year: 2008; Butler and Desbarres based the design of their forest-sited shelter on the Voronoi diagram, a mathematical breakdown of space determined by a random set of points on a plane. They built a cube of 2-inch-square steel yellow tubing, based on a system that distributed the tubes randomly within the constraints of the square faces. After choosing a particular translucent material to hang in the frame, the students were unable to convince its manufacturer to donate it and are currently revising their design. #Leaf_Shelter #shelter
