From the minds of the team at Columbia University’s Graduate School of Architecture, the Visual Permeability Pavilion was created as part of a digital fabrication course…well all that hard work may soon pay off as the concept is now a reality at $12,000 a pop.
The purpose of the Visual Permeability Pavilion is to provide multiple spaces for relaxation, contemplation, and social interaction. The two spaces within the project are broken apart, providing one space for two people to relax in a more private setting, and one space for four people to have a conversation and/or drink beer.
The density of the slats is based on three density types: The densest zones are designated for walking and sitting, the medium zones are designated as backrest locations, and the lightest zones are meant for shading. This project is one-of-a-kind and was made from furniture-grade birch plywood, using digital fabrication techniques.
This would be perfect on my balcony.
