The design for this shelter is inspired by the waves of the ocean. The overhang provides shelter from the sun and rain and the bends in the walls create area for privacy or protection from the wind.
There are 13 editable parameters (listed below) that can control the size and height of the shelter, as well as the sizes of the sine waves that define the overhang and walls. This is useful to quickly edit the size of the shelter or the potential allowed occupancy. There are also inputs for the number of ribs or panels which can be beneficial when optimizing cost.
The characteristic curves of the shelter are defined. The curve at the base and at the overhang are translated into sine waves that create the aesthetic of the wave important to this design.
The ribs and panels are defined for this shelter.
The adaptive components are brought in and assigned to the Dynamo elements to connect to the Revit model.
