Inspired by the geometrical nature of water molecules, the Crystal Cells 3D printed Water Taxi station is generated by modules derived from truncated octahedrons.
Programmatically, as these modules, or molecules, emerge from water to land, they crystalize into a constellation providing shelter for the users of the water taxi.
The structure aims to further mimic the effect of these natural occurrences, by providing an underwater experience, achieved through degrees of transparencies generated by perforations.
The pavilion takes an organic form based on the crystallization and the rotational manipulation of a single 3D module.
Which allows the opportunity to
explore the use of complex morphologies to articulate and enhance space-using modules.
