Theo Jansen, a Dutch artist and kinetic scultpor, born in March 14, 1948, builds large works which resemble skeletons of animals and are able to walk using the wind on the beaches. His animated works are a fusion of art and engineering.
8 links per leg
120 degrees of crank rotation per stride.
3 legs will replace a wheel.
Counterclockwise rotation of the crank.
Step height is primarily achieved by a parallel linkage in the leg that is folded during the cycle angling the lower portion of the leg.
“The walls between art and engineering exist only in our minds.” Theo Jansen

“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.
