Assembly One, New Haven CT   The Assembly One Pavilion was the first product of the Assembly project, a seminar initiated by a group of post-professional students at Yale - myself included - and sponsored by ASSA ABLOY. The objective was to design and build a pavilion for the International Arts and Ideas Festival held annually on the New Haven Green. Discourse around the project was focused on the capabilities of digital fabrication as a bridge between design and construction, as well as the ability to produce spectacular surface effects through the manipulation of materials and geometry.

    The concept behind the pavilion was to create a camouflaged figure, visible from almost anywhere on the green but invisible from the main performance stage. To do this an attractor point was positioned near the stage and all the structural members are angled to converge on this point.  Right: View of the pavilion from the vanishing point.          Assembly One team:   Jacqueline Ho  and Amy Mielke (Project Managers), David Bench, Zac Heaps, Eric Zahn, Brennan Buck (faculty advisor), Nicholas Hunt, John Lacy, JT Bachman, Veer Nanavatty, Seema Kairam, Robert Bundy, Raven Hardison, Matthew Hettler.
