Chevron Column

Riverview High School, Riverview New Brunswick Workshop 2020

Edited by Philip Beesley

With contributions from Rob Gorbet, Muhammad Tahir Pervaiz and Bianca Weeko Martin

This folio contains digital fabrication component cutting patterns and assembly instructions for constructing a diagrid chevron column using push-together laser-cut components. The assembly forms a part of a large collection of lightweight components developed by the earlier Hylozoic Ground Collaboration and the current Living Architecture Systems Group. This folio was produced in association with Ian Fogarty and Rob Gorbet for Riverview High School students in New Brunswick, Canada. Workshop activities were supported by this open-source material during the Fall term of 2020.

The Living Architecture Systems Group (LASG) is an interdisciplinary partnership of academics, artists, designers and industry partners dedicated to researching and developing next-generation architectural environments. The LASG disseminates its work through exhibitions, publications and events. It is generously supported by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC), the University of Waterloo and many other partners and supporters.

The LASG Folio consists of work-in-progress reports and publications by LASG researchers and contributors.
