SunSys project on the Campus Emilie in Detmold

SunSys is a five meters long and two meters high wall, which was implemented as an experimental construction in late October 2014 on the campus Emilie in Detmold. It was developed by the application of digital design and manufacturing methods. Planar elements are assembled in a plug-in system and generate a freeform geometry. Variations in the dimension of the individual elements enable different degrees of wall-openings.

The system is based on the eponymous thesis project by Jens Böke at the HS-OWL. This first approach focused on the conceptual digital design. Aim of the recent reconsideration of the draft was, to transfer the digital model into a buildable construction.
