This pavilion was built to demonstrate some of the research currently happening in the MIT Department of Architecture. Within the Framework project we explored many themes that have current disciplinary significance to architects, including the rationalization and construction of complex forms, the automation of design to manufacturing processes, new methods to describe construction sequences, mass customization, and reciprocal structures that can span large distances with small components. This pavilion is just one of many forms that we can build using the tools we developed.
