Found this study on the Japan Pavilion to be pretty intriguing do to the fact that it is one of the ways we are investigating how the grid shell operates and configures to the way the programs at hand.  The upper right image is the actual pavilion’s joints that allow the grid joints to rotate and draw on the S curve. I know this has been shown, but I found that have a joint that would allow for tree-dimensional movement is a key element for the projects at hand.
