Inspired by Thomas Jefferson's serpentine walls at UVA...



I am very new to Revit so please excuse the rudimentary appearance of my final product! It is nonetheless inspired by the University of Virginia, and specifically Thomas Jefferson's serpentine walls:


My concept drawings:


In my implementation of these serpentine walls underneath a partial roof cover, the designer has the ability to parametrically vary the following, which are all linked such that varying one will not throw of the relative positioning of the others:

  • wall height
  • roof height
  • serpentine wall curvature
  • wall length

Whichever offers the most graceful combination for a stroll along a serpentine wall, the designer can implement!
