RETHINKING THE PHILIPS PAVILION THROUGH ROBOTIC HOT WIRE CUTTING. An experimental prototype

Martins, Pedro Filipe; Nunes, Sandra; Campos, Paulo Fonseca de; Sousa, José Pedro;

Article:

The Philips Pavilion by Le Corbusier and Jannis Xenaquis was a landmarkproject in thin shell concrete construction, only made possible by an experimentalprecasting strategy that deeply defined the architectural character of thehyperbolic paraboloid surfaces of the pavilion. Using this historic precedent thisresearch presents a reinterpretation of the design of the Philips Pavilion,specifically tailored for Robotic Hot Wire Cutting technologies and a layeredmold system, combining speed and material optimization towards moresustainable concrete construction processes. By documenting the realization ofan experimental prototype at a 1:2 scale, this paper demonstrates the feasibilityof the proposed strategy and its value in comparison with existing constructionscale digital fabrication technologies for concrete.
