Project: acoustic Ceiling
design : D. Pinochet + “art & science” class : Arturo Torres + P. Gonzalez
Analisis and design adjusments: Diego Pinochet (early tests) – Constanza jorquera (final tests)
Executive project and Construction: Arturo Torres – Paloma Gonzalez – Constanza Jorquera
This is an old project (january – march 2008 ) , for the PUC. it´s and acoustic ceiling made of plasterboard. the objective of this work , was to develop new possibillities fdor the plasterboard material , according to deformations, specially the double curvature of the each panel.

The system for the design, was scripted in rhinoceros and tested in ecotect.The idea was to cut each plasterboard in a cnc router, but the construction team chooose other construction methods.
The project was builded in one of the clasrooms of my university. The construction was in charge of a team guided for the professor Arturo Torres (with the students of the class “art and science), according to a colaboration agreement beteween the university and KNAUFF (www.knauff.cl). Torres and his team, took my design, and began a research for the deformation of each panel , and continued the acoustic analisis for the correct performace of the object. The final form suffer some adjusments for the final construction but basically the idea, and the design itself remains the same (the tools generated in rhinoscript where facilitated to torres and team, to generate construction information).
