THE FORMED SPACE is a result of student workshop. During the workshop,participants were familiarized with bending- active structure- a type of construction in which the form is obtained due to elastic deformations of bent elements, which in the basic configuration are flat and straight
| model
Determing the course of bending boards was made in a double- track fashion. Firstly, the shape of each element is a elastically deformed element, which final shape is determined by its length and boundry conditions. Secondly, intersections between boards are tangent to the underlaying surface, which was obtained using geodesicurves

The executive design only showed the dimensions of the boards in a flat configurations and the way they were fixed at the base. Each board consist of two layers o 4 mm plywood, connected with eachother by flat metal bars and wood screws. The bottom layer of boards were equipped with dilatations because it is a compressed layer
