The main lineage of exploration in this studio investigates how archetypical architectural conditions such as symmetry, proportion and direction can be transmutated into contemporary architectural expressions, with the use of state of the art computational design methods.

Kip - physical model idea
above is a quick diagram of the physical model I was thinking about doing based on our discussion on biomechanical structures. The parts would be hollowed out 3d prints connected with hinge joints and then a spring joint using shocks from remote control racing cars. The top diagram shows how the connection would work. The bottom render isn't complete with all of the hinge joints but close enough to what the final output would look like. The thickness of the 3d prints would vary from 1/2" to 1- 3/4"... Thoughts...?
