The Slipstream structure is essentially a 2d line drawing turned into a 3d structure, For the Slipstream structure, a 2d drawing was extruded in the computer and then carved away to make the curving walls. Each of the notches was calculated and drawn by a grasshopper routine and then the (1800) pieces were cut from plywood with a computer controlled mill. They all fit together without fasteners – the redundancy of pieces creates structural stability and keeps everything in place. The entire structure is only wood and paint.
