Differentiated Structures in Nature and Design 2/3
Date: Friday 17 March 2006
The symposium presents a novel approach to architectural design and sustainability, based on the differentiation of the material systems that make up the built environment towards an enhanced performance capacity. This approach is embedded within a biological paradigm that offers new insights into higher-level functionality of living nature. The third session examines current approaches to differentiated and multi-performative systems in the fast-evolving intersection between designing, engineering and making.
