Precedents in Biomimicry

ICD Biological structure-imitate sea urchin’s plate skeleton morphology Biological structures are applied in the computational design process New construction design-study geometric differentiation about urchin’s shell plate Test resulting spatial and structural material-systems in full scale Investigate methods of modular bionic construction using free form surfaces representing different geometric characteristics

ZA11 pavilion Attracting passers-by to the event Ontology: present participle of the verb ’be’ is the philosophical study of the nature of being, becoming, existence or reality, as well as the basic categories of being and their relations. Ontology deals with questions concerning about entities. The object tries to make legible the new ontology which is slowly defined by computational architecture and is a showcase for the processes empowered by it. The final design consists of 746 unique pieces create a free-form ring which is subdivided into deep hexagons.

Canopy The experience of walking through the dappled light of a forest It is a 90-metre long light sculpture spanning the front facade of the building, using mass production and precise fabrication to evoke and reflect nature Form abstracted from the geometry of leaves, are organized in a non-repeating growth pattern The result simultaneously recalls the activity of cells within a leaf, leaves in a forest canopy, or a city seen from the air.

Fallen Star Installation set between biomimetic, interaction, and perception. Explore the concepts of regeneration, emergence, and growth through their broad existence in natural and biological structures of differing scales, followed by their abstraction and interpretation into elaborated design proposals. Exploring the formation rules found in nature in order to devise an architectural installation. Their digital natural growth algorithms into specific parameters which can be manipulated with an iPad interface The dimension of interaction animates the architectural piece simply according to user feedback and the potential of creating dynamic spatial experiences challenging perception and temporarily.

Centre for Ideas The form and spatial qualities were derived from generative processes resulting in a project that stimulates debate regarding architectural design process, materialization, and the perception of the abstract as reality. Centre for Ideas is an expansion from an algorithm for establishing the voronoi tessellation of a plane. A voronoi diagram locates domains closest to particular structures relative to those adjacent. Such diagrams provide a model for a model for considering spatial arrangements different from php?id=home:projects:victorian_college_of_the_arts

The morning line The Morning Line is built of 17 tons of coated aluminum is an intersection for information from various fields, such as art, music, architecture, engineering, mathematics, physics, cosmology and technology. The Morning Line is both ruin and monument, the blackened frame of a cathedral-like structure; a drawing in and of space; an ‘anti-pavilion’. Unlike traditional architectural pavilions, it takes the form of an open cellular structure rather than an enclosure, basing its eloquent visual language on a radical cosmological theory The Morning Line uses fractal cycles to build a model of the universe that scales up and down. There is no single way in or out, no final form. it is not only designed for the future, it creates it.

Spanish pavilion - Ceramica Cumella Fabrication processes in use at Ceramica Cumella – extruding, casting, pressing and revolving Give expression to the hybridization of Jewish- Christian cultures and the Islamic influence on the Iberian Peninsula both so evident in the history of Spanish architecture Identified characteristic architectural elements of this culture of synthesis and played in the pavilion design MATERIALS AND BUILDING CONSTRUCTION A lattice has been designed consisting of six different pieces, based on an orthogonal grid, and encoded with a color. The idea of creating a ceramic facade symbolizes the Spanish approach to Japan. Recovery of the traditional ceramic lattice from Mediterranean architecture in order to achieve traditional spaces and shadow in the building Lattice a traditional architectural element in Spain that reflect the fusion btw Christian and Islamic architecture

Creation of lattice for culturally appropriate cladding solution for the existing pavilion box New lattice consisted of 6 different tiles, based in a hexagonal grid coded with color Produce a continuously varying pattern of geometry and color. 6colours of tiles are the variation of the red and yellow of the national flag, reflecting the colors of wine, roses, and the blood of the bullfights, sun and sand. Colors universally associated with Spain

Volta Dom Volta Dom attempts to expand the notion of the architectural “surface panel,� by intensifying the depth of a doubly-curved vaulted surface, while maintaining relative ease in assembly and fabrication. This is made possible by transforming complex curved vaults to developable strips, one that likens the assembly to that of simply rolling a strip of material.
