Architectural designer Jenny Sabin tapped her experience and keen interest in science and molecular biology to create the myThread Pavilion.
Using a mechanical process called tension knitting, each part of the spiderweb-like structure was woven concentrically to create seamless 3D forms using solar-activated, reflective and photoluminscent threads that each respond differently to variable lighting. Tension between the thread and a skeleton of laser-cut aluminum rings and steel cable net keeps the pavilion in place. “I wanted to play with the differentiation between a hard, metallic exterior edge and how that transitions into a soft, kind of organic form,” says Sabin.
