A Scenario: I Design the Vessels, Nature Does the Rest
An architect stands in front of a shelf of material vessels (much like the cabinet full of test tubes and beakers in a laboratory). He is faced with a choice for the task at hand (possibly a wall, a façade, or a roof … ). Next to this shelf, is a library of available biological parts. He selects the organisms that will give him the desired affect and continues to his workstation. The combination is made, the fluid is concocted and pumped through the material vessel. This is the beginnings of the bio-skin. The architect is left to his own devices, he no longer has control over the system, and now waits for the chemical reactions to take place …
Welcome to the bio-digital age of design. This is, presumably, how architects will work in the future; where material assemblies are not fixed enclosures and where the architect is never in full control of the system.
from the thesis entitled, Material Fertility
Sharing some work in progress. Preliminary studies made for my thesis, Material Fertility. This is the breakdown of a possible geometry in its uniform state. I have also been working on morphing these in grasshopper to increase the variability and experimenting with a couple of other iterations of a base unit.
