  • Resonating spaces - 

    Through the study of the analogy between forms and patterns of sound and of nature, we are conducting experiments concerning a different mechanical way to stimulate matter. Through the study of models in nature, prototypes of integrative, self-assembling, self- organizing architectonic structures are created. A 3D- printer is hacked to host this system and extrude agar based or bio plastic structures as a bone system.

    The project originates in and will contribute to the field of architecture and design. The planned experiments combine the latest scientific breakthroughs in the fields of bio-tech and 3d-printing.
