Beschreibung
The following case study presents an anticlastic, double-curved foldable SLEs structure designed as translational surface. Where scissor-like elements (SLEs) are common in mechanical engineering, for example for elevators, they are an exception in architecture. Mostly, this structural idea is used to achieve linear movement. The work of Chuck Hobberman is one of the few examples of studies of SLEs in architectural structures, such as domes. The investigation SLEs applied to more arbitrary, anticlastic, double-curved surfaces has been, if at all udertaken, neglected. Yet, only if all principle kinds of curvature (elliptic, parabolic, hyperbolic) can be approached by such a construction, it will provide the necessary freedom for contempary design and architecture. With this paper the feasibility of such a construction will be prooved, a prototype developed. Its geometrical as well as its structural implications will be investigated.
