Project1.2 " Hexagonal Beam " by Athitaya Kookitwattana

    In the second phase, beams are the important parts both to connect each column and to support the structure. I develop the column by creating a unit which consist of clear acrylic sheet and balsa wood that represent glass and steel in the real construction. My target is to get rid of the dimness of the previous column by using acrylic sheet to contract the model, this material would aloud more sunlight and win flow. To connect each column, my beam are design for the remain space when the column are place together creating an umbrella like hexagonal sheet as beam which still based on the previous concept which is to allow hollow space in the middle.

The vision from the top create an illusion of the acrylic sheet which gives different effect from each angle of the sunlight.
