Students in the College of Architecture at IIT recently completed FIBERwave, a full-scale carbon fiber pavilion that was built following a successful Kickstarter campaign. Designed as part of the student design research studio Carbon_Lab, the armadillo-like lightweight pavilion is built entirely of carbon fiber to provoke discussion on the architectural potential of the flexible but strong material. The pavilion was created from a series of identical geometric “shells” held together with metal rings and tension cables. The tension cables can be loosened or tightened to change the shape of the pavilion in response to the environment.
