ARCH 433 Intro to Digital Fabrication : The Palm Pavilion

The Palm Pavilion was the final project of IIT’s Digital Fabrication course, taught by Alphonso Peluso. This class works to teach and refine CNC milling skills through the use of 3D digital software, Rhino, and its parametric plugin Grasshopper. The Palm Pavilion began as an exploration of vertical columns but quickly transitioned to a question of movement through a small space. Three main columns blossom outward near eye level, which spiral up into an overhead canopy. Each column consists of twelve branches that incrementally step up to a max height of 8’. Small platforms act as the roots of these trees, which can act as small seating, model displays, or whatever else the people of Crown Hall might think of. The space is intended to be a short experiential journey while on the way to one’s destination, with the flowing columns directing the human movement in one direction or another. Despite the large size of the overhead pieces, the structure remains quite stable through its sturdy triangular column layout. Each column was built in two separate sections, the bottom “trunk” and top “canopy.” These could be constructed independently from one another to greatly speed up assembly by breaking into smaller groups. Our biggest issue was fitting the two sections on top of one another. After a quick pivot, we were able to simply rest the two sections on top of one another and use the dominos as filler pieces. From here, our last major challenge was fitting the three trees into one another. The tolerances of our joints were a bit too tight, but after some small adjustments everything came together to create the finished product.
