Form finding Our aim in the form finding was to speculate on the best and functional shape. We used strings to understand how it’s possible to go further in a controlled twist. Doing several different models we understand which was the best rotation to achieve our goal, and we figure it out that the optimal [...]

Peripatetic Concatenation (G1 – Aeroponics / Mobility)

When handling large numbers of plants, contamination poses the greatest threat. The coupling of aeroponics with an almost fully automated growth system eliminates most soil-based deterrents as well as plant-to-plant activity, greatly decreasing infection and mortality rates. Conveyor systems work in tandem with the plants. The interconnected movement and growth will result in a mobile [...]
