Solid Apollo and MIT Created Futuristic LED-Lit Feather-Weight House
Sep 23, 2011 LED Company SolidApollo from North Seattle has recently reported that it participated in the collaborative LED Lighting Art project with MIT.The free standing futuristic house designed by Nick Gelpi was illuminated by flexible LED lighting strips.
According to the press release MIT architect Nick Gelpi has designed a freestanding pavilion, created by flexing two dimensions into three. The house is created by cutting patterns into flat sheets of plywood which when “pushed” into position similar to old fashion pop up books, is transformed into a three dimensional house complete with skylights, columns, buttresses, windows and vents.
Once the house is raised the lightweight interior walls will be illuminated by attaching flexible LED Light Strips onto the interior of each sheet of plywood.
The final structure which reminds one of an open ended Quonset hut is neither bullet proof nor expensive to build, instead it is a demonstration of what can be done with a simple piece of plywood and well thought out planning. “We’re glad to have been chosen to play a minor role in this exciting project” states Barquin.
