Palabras para una Tormenta
“Palabras para una tormenta” is an architecture/sound art installation, consisting of a small capsule where to relax listening to poetry. Its peculiar bubble like shape was obtained through a form finding process consisting of applying a normal force to each of the faces of a planar mesh, producing an “inflation” effect. The model was optimized through a process of planarization of the mesh faces (PQ mesh), so that they could be cutted in 3mm thick plywood with a CNC machine. In the preparation of the cutting file, the wood fiber direction in the plywood has been considered, in order to obtain a uniform bending behaviour in the material throughout the whole surface. The outline of the quadrilateral pieces includes a union system, which allow them to be overlapped and connected through bolts.
