Plate structures for generation of solid blocks. R I G I D / S O L I D S U R FACE 51 Push Button House 1 Adam Kalkin This portable shipping container opens at the push of a button, revealing an apartment with six different living areas: a dining area, a kitchen, a double bedroom, a bathroom, a library and a living room. The synchronized opening sequence utilizes eight hydraulic rams to move all the side planes of the shipping container in less than a minute, leaving as fixed elements only the top and bottom planes and the four corner posts.

This aerostat was the largest in the world and was used as a ‘white canvas’ on which to project videos and images that would set the mood and rhythm of the ceremony. Its design is based on the geometry of a torus – a surface revolution generated by a circle revolving around a coplanar axis in three-dimensional space. As with all their airships and inflatable structures, every single component of the aerostat was designed and manufactured in the Lindstrand factory. The aerostat’s main structural component is its envelope, which is made with new composite aerostat skin materials with exceptionally low helium permeation.

Designed by the architect Mitsuru Senda of EDI, the eight-segment retractable flat roof requires eight minutes to deploy, powered electrically. Each petal is pinned in one corner only. The geometry of the roof allows each petal to rotate around its single pin on an arc track on the adjacent module that guides movement. The following examples are a series of built projects, prototypes and aerospace deployable mechanisms that consist of solid surfaces.
