Peripatetic Concatenation (G1 – Aeroponics / Mobility) – Midterm

Following our basic analysis of polycarbonate/methacrylate when subjected to heat we manufactured a wide range of a single type of component. Fitting them together to create our large prototype. Intended as a 1:1 scaleless study model it will inform our decision on the relationships possible with the growth system (continued further down, ‘A’). Having tested [...]

G4- Aeroponic Propagation and Shaping.

Propagation is a method for developing «Horticultural Clones» using two techniques:Grafting and Budding. This enforces better adaptation qualities, vegetation renewal and correct damaged specimens. While Shaping is altering the structures of trees for asthetics and function. This is acheived by manipulating the roots to adapt to a design. Combining Propagation and Shaping would increase crop [...]
