COMBINATIONAL MODEL / EXPERIMENT NINE
In our combinatorial model, the goal was to further the concept of notching and explore it in the construction of a building. This model displays elements that sit into each other to brace and strengthen the concrete structure of the building. The flooring system places the bracing in a way that also allows for all of the mechanical systems to be hidden within the structure.
The walls are positioned following the 3-wall rule which provides the most stable system. Furthermore the walls align at a point with the walls on the floor above it to resist normal forces.
