“An elegant building should entail an elegant structure and both together should be able to spatialize considerable organizational complexity without descending into visual disorder. Like in natural systems, all forms are the result of lawfully interacting forces.” – Patrick Schumacher – Engineering Elegance

The first example is more about curvilinear tubes which function as a branching network, the number and the position of a branch in the hierarchy of branches from the outermost twig to the trunk, and the length of each branch, have a logarithmic relation.
The second example is based on the idea of formation process of radiolaria, which belong to the order of marine planktonic protozoa and feature a central protoplasm comprising a chitinous capsule and siliceous spicules that are perforated by pores. The porous mass of the cell encasements of radiolaria deliver an interesting model for differentiated texture in architecture that may feature a variety of specific performance capacities.
Each object is unique and consists of curvilinear surface (first example) or honeycomb (second example) like components. As a field, these components act collectively to express properties of porosity, color, and the interplay of light and shadow. This collection of properties generates a moment in a continuous state of change.  It can also absorb thermal energy and release it to the airflow enabled by the porosity, and the double curvature can be utilized for thermal exposure or self-shading.

  1. Hello Dani,

    I really like your projects and would love to talk about techniques you used during the design process. Hit me back if you are available!

    Keep it up. Patrick
