FORM THREE - PARASITIC GROWTH Parasitic growth is the epitome of organicism. Its growth pattern is reactionary, rather than prescriptive. In contrast, structure is prescriptive, proactive, rational, and easily replicated. I wanted to explore the dichotomy between parasitic language and the structural construction process.
PARASITIC STRUCTURE PROCESS ONE ONE
TRIANGLE - SIMPLEST POLYGON
TRIANGULATED STRUCTURAL GEOMETRIES THIN SEGMENTS - TRANSPARENCY
STRUCTURAL GROWTH FROM MODULES 3 SEGMENTS PER MODULE FOR TRIANGULATION
GROWTH AT CENTRAL AXIS 2 SHORT : TOWARDS AXIS 1 LONG : AWAY FROM AXIS
INDIVIDUAL SEGMENTS CONNECTED STRUCTURAL STABILITY ORGANIC GROWTH DEVELOPS
ADDITIONAL SEGMENTS FOR STRUCTURAL SUPPORT. FORM COMPLETELY SUSPENDED. CONNECTS ONLY AT MODULES.
