The Acceleration Interchange is M1A’s proposal for an installation at Anaheim’s new regional transportation hub ARTIC. The project, a wayfinding pavilion, reflects Meridian 105²s ongoing exploration of equation-based parametric modeling and design-to-fabrication processes.

Placed in the facilitiy’s large exterior plaza, the piece activates the streetscape, encouraging circulation within and around and a primary orientation point for connecting travelers. The form finds reference to the transportation theme of the larger facility, modeled by the application of wave and acceleration formulae acting on its form. The resulting pavilian is a twisting organic gesture.

The installation is a fabrication of GFRP (glass fiber reinforced polymer) tube volumes formed from the digital model. The finished GFRP encases a structural steel frame cantilevered from concrete foundations and stabilized horizontally by a spine. A structural diaphram provides additonal rigidity at the pavilian’s open edge.
