Natural structures are analyzed and understood as hierarchies of very simple components organized into constructs from the smallest arrangement of material, through successive subassemblies to the most complex – the whole organism or body. Properties and performances emerge that are Human occupancy, in particular, proximity and time-lapse will be the parameters that will define multispatial requirements. These requirements transfer to the phenotype, described by software- controlled parameters.
The basic aim of this project is to design a flexible dividable 3d-Printed structure as the customer requires. And we also work on a system that will act as structure and fit the feature of the material at the same time. The development of these systems will originate from the definition of their simplest constituents integrating manufacturing constraints and assembly logic in parametric components.
The research processing includes experimentation and to know the feature of the material in order to build a stable structure. We use silkworm, vault and many other parametric tools to help our design. This new combine knowledge will be applied in the design of structure system and unit. We set up a 2-week workshop during this process also to teach the basic knowledge of form founding and 3D-printing.
Consequently, the system also includes the development of parametric, by using this kind of new techniques we can get the feedback and improve data during the process.
