Let's Get Physical

"Deep Surfaces" pursued the creation of a complex 3D tensile membrane system composed of steel wire and elastic fabric.

Leave the nails and screws behind? That was the idea behind "Rapid R&D to Rapid Assembly," which developed a snap-together approach to architecture.

With the help of a six-axis KUKA robot that sliced foam blocks into complex shapes, "Explicit Bricks" built a compression-only structure.

Focused more on exploration than on a final "product," "Nonlinear Systems Biology and Design" merged parametric design and biological networks.

"High-Tech Design, Low-Tech Construction" assembled a "habitat" out of zip ties and two types of laser-cut wood tiles, precisely arranged.

Sewing machines were indispensable to the members of "Inflatable Fabric Envelopes," which explored various uses for dual-membrane structures.
