Heliocell project

+ IAAC . domus

In a two week workshop at the Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia (IAAC) in Barcelona, 15 students of different nationalities worked together on the design and fabrication of the ¨Heliocell¨.This is a temporary solar pavilion with solar panels incorporated on its skin. In order to get the maximum advantage of the solar radiation, the pavilion can transform its form in response to the position of the sun. Through parametric and environmental design (Grasshopper, Rhino, Ecotect), physical computation (Arduino) and digital fabrication (lasercutter, milling-machine) the team proceeded to the construction of both a 1:5 and 1:1 prototype.
