CORK.CATENATION

Non planar 3D printing cork based biomaterial CORK.CATENATION employs the novel methodology of non-planar 3d printing using Cork as the bio-material. The final outcome is a connection of interconnected lattice structures- broken down into modules that can be assembled to form a building skin that can morph according to the surface topology and solar radiation results.

CELL DIVISION

Pluripotent (‘capable of multiple tasks‘) stem cells are cells that can divide indefinitely.  These cell layers are the fundamental tissues that give rise to all the different types of cells and tissues found in the adult organism.  Given this property, stem cells are potentially able to recreate any tissue or organ found in the body.  … Read more

The Rooftop Playground

A Place to enjoy the sun, play, hide and chill The Rooftop Playground proposes, as the name suggests, a leisure (playground) space on the given rooftop of IAAC building. This attempt is derived from the current lack of character, the needs in alternating qualities of spaces (privacy, light, etc.), as well as the need of … Read more

Slime Molds Simulation

Natural Behavior This exercise focuses on exploring and understanding the behavior of Physarum polycephalum, a slime mold organism, through digital simulations. Different configurations and parameters will be investigated to observe how they affect the movement, reproduction, and growth of this organism.
