Introduction: Nubular: Conflated Constructions

nube | noo’-bay
A cloud. (f) (Spanish)

tubular |ˈt(y)o͞obyələr|
long, round, and hollow like a tube

conflate | kən-ˈflāt
conflation occurs when the identities of two or more individuals, concepts, or places, sharing some characteristics of one another, seem to be a single identity — the differences appear to become lost

The Nubular lightweight structure is an exploration into an injection-based architecture. A homogenous building material, in this case a perforated PVC skin, is used to create tubes of custom lengths and angles, which are then filled with a material chosen for its specific attributes and performance relative to its position within the overall geometry of the structure
