Researchers Create Stunning 3D Printed, Programmable, Bio-Inspired Architectural Materials

Researchers Create Stunning 3D Printed, Programmable, Bio-Inspired Architectural Materials | Digital Fabrication | Scoop.it

"Biological systems often have the ability to adapt to their environments. They harness external atmospheric stimuli, and as a result, triggers are activated which might result in kinematic shape or chemical changes to a given system or plant. Performance challenges – when pitted against a series of resource limitations like humidity or lack of water – can provoke complex and multi-layered structural changes in plants, and nature regularly makes use of various strategies and materials to deal with those challenges.[...] University of Stuttgart Professor Achim Menges, a registered architect and the founding director of the Institute for Computational Design, is also a visiting professor in architecture at Harvard University, and his practice and research are devoted to creating integral design processes at the nexus of “morphogenetic design computation, biomimetic engineering and computer aided manufacturing."

Matt Shlian: The Unconventional Artist and Paper Engineer

Matt Shlian: The Unconventional Artist and Paper Engineer | Digital Fabrication | Scoop.it
Artist and designer Matt Shlian is a self-professed paper engineer whose work is something of a hybrid between art and science. With a proclivity for both geometry and the medium of paper, he is currently using origami to help engineers consider their work in three dimensions.
