Vana Installation by Orproject

Home > Winners > #35579


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Vana

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Installation

INSPIRATION:
Orproject developed a series of algorithms that digitally generate open and closed venation patterns, which can be used to simulate the growth of topiaries. The systems consist of a set of seed points that grow and branch towards target points in order to maximize exposure to light for each leaf. The resulting geometries fulfil these requirements and provide a suitable structural and circulatory system for the plant. Vana appears to grow as tree-like branches blending into a continuous canopy that floats above the visitor.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The structural system of topiaries acts mainly in compression and bending. Reversing this, a geometry that performs purely in tension is achieved. Designed as a single surface in tension, Vana hangs from the ceiling and descends as four columns of light. The surface is tessellated into triangular segments which are connected by stitched joints. Back lit with LEDs, light shines through the gaps and illuminates the space with an immersive glow. Vana performs as an iso-surface around an anastomotic network diagram, a cortex around a venation system.
