The Globe was a created as a collaborative zone within the Facebook Singapore Office.
The form had been parametrically generated to create the patterns of the Glone. The entire form is then split into individual planks, which are efficiently nested into plywood sheets to be cut out using a CNC milling machine.
The use of a file-to-factory workflow allows an efficient and seamless process of producing the Globe with minimal waste and manual labour. The individual planks are labelled and cut to a manageable size for a human worker, allowing it to be easily assembled offsite.
Reconfigurable forms seamlessly used as a pop up cafe
