Sevenbyfive tessellations

Sevenbyfive is an interactive architectural surface that has the ability to scale and bend out plane at the same time. We create a “second-order” four-way linkage mechanism to  achieve this. Generic ball and socket joint connectors allow out of plane movements. We handcasted 800 components over a period of 5 days and motorized them.
