Organic structure (radiolaria,porifera).3D printing,laser cutting.(Big post inside,coming soon).


In this exercise we try to understand organic structure of biological organisms like radiolaria and porifera (sponge) and take out some principle that can be effective for architecture and design.

Encounter on questions like what is the skin and what is the structure ? Relationship between skin and structure and function of them. Modular elements in nature and architecture.

All models we made with digital technologic like laser cutting, PVC printing  and powder printing .We also did some interaction  between technologies.
