The brief was to choose a geometric form, manipulate it and come up with a product. I chose Cuboid as my parent form.
I decided to make a canopy for an outdoor cafeteria/ events. It can be tessellated or placed individually as seen on the explorations. The form is aerodynamic which allows to rain water to run off.
Explorations inside the Cuboid using Nylon cloth.
Rough model to show some possibilities on how the hyperbolic paraboloid canopy can be arranged/placed.
Scale model - 1:10 of the final design.
Function : Shelter
Tensile Canopy

Tensile canopy, this was done during our Form Exploration Course where we had to choose a geometric form and manipulate it.
