11/22/2008 Assignment #5 The wall system that we designed is meant to be an operable system that allows the facade to slip in and out creating new configurations on the interior. This connection between the exterior system and the interior system are crucial to the design. Based on this objective we set about developing our joint. The joint has 5 fastener points, 4 for brackets in the x and y axis and 1 for the adjustable facade fastener in the z axis. The reconfigurability of the wall system led us to explore the idea of a facade that changes opac- ity based on a screening system which serves as the main cladding for the facade. This cladding provides more or less privacy + protection from the elements based on the decisions of the build- ings inhabitants. Ornamental Structures
