SiX Space

SiX Space was a conceptual design project for an Intro to Rhino class. The objective was to design a wall panel that has the capability of movement. SiX is an enviornment that experiments with the objective of transitional movement. Using a hexagonal pyramid and moving the sides in a rotational pattern allows for a wave like motion when put on a wall panel.

 Each side of the hexagonal pyramid is attached to a rotating peg that is synchronized to a computer.

 The space for the wall panel is a track-like layout. Hexagonal pyramids line the inner partitions.

 The gap between the wall and standing space allows for the wall panel to span upwards or downwards and look infinite.
