Analysis of the facade fabrication technique and performance in relation to the overall fenestration system through half scale modelling and drawings representations.

The fabrication technique of this rippled, non-load bearing brick-concrete panels was comprehended by construction of a half-scale physical model, each of the casting, milling and assembling processes were simulated by available shop tools. Material limits, tooling tolerances and half-scale translation errors didn’t merely affect the time-frame of each process ,but determined the overall attributes and weather performance of the decorative brickwork. The drawings were intended to articulate the comprehension of the facade at two scales: performance and construction of the actual wall section and the tectonics of the mock up fabrication. The overall analysis helps to realize the driving reasons, possibilities and impact of the fenestration design.
