MDE 05 Fibrous Surface

Morphogenetic Design Experiment 05 This morphogentic design experiment aims to evolve a differentiated surface structure consisting of a dense network of interlocking members from a basic array of simple, straight elements. To achieve complexity in the resultant...

MDE 04 Membrane Morphologies

Morphogenetic Design Experiment 04 This morphogentic design experiment focused on the computational and physical investigation of “minimal holes” cut into the fabric that considerably alter the behaviour of the membrane. While traditional form-finding methods focus on...

MDE 03 Paper Strip Morphologies

Morphogenetic Design Experiment 03 This Morphogentic design experiment is based on the parametric proliferation of very simple material components, namely twisted and bent paper-strips. In this project a digital component is defined as an open and extendable geometric...
