Artigas Concrete Column

Building Technology / Fall 2022
São Paulo, Brazil
Jaú Bus Terminal / Vilanova Artigas
Professor Sam Anderson
Group Project with Riley Howard, Qrin Park, Zelda Liu, Tina Chang

Artigas’s concrete column splits into four spokes bounded by a tension ring in the top slab, allowing light to enter from above and spreads out the transfer of horizontal forces. Our 1:8 scale model uses a CNC fabricated foam mold, bent rebar and cast concrete to replicate the structural performance of this architectural moment.

We designed multiple layers of foam fitted together into a three part mold enclosing the complex shape. The model is 3ftx3ft at the top and 3inx3in at the base. I lead the project selection, mold & base design and fabrication aspects of the team.A concrete counterweight is placed at the bottom of the wooden base to prevent tipping.
