Cylindrical Membrane Morphologies

This project pursues the study of a micro tensioned element that is highly flexible in its form and constellation, easily connectible and geometrical aligned but at the same time appears organically and randomly arranged. A system is developed consisting of an easy geometrical principle, which becomes more complex through minor deformation of the single element, and can be materialized as a membrane tensile element or a stiffened fibre-composite cell. Through this process the single element can be highly differentiated by several ways of manipulation and reaction to different parameters, and instrumentalized for particular environmental conditions. At the same time, it can retain control of the overall building concept accommodating larger and more complex structures.
