title Biological Computation for Digital Design and Fabrication

summary The formation of non-woven fibre structures generated by the Bombyx mori silkworm is explored as a computational approach for shape and material optimization. Biological case studies are presented and a design approach for the use of silkworms as entities that can “compute” fibrous material organization is given in the context of an architectural design installation. We demonstrate that in the absence of vertical axes the silkworm can spin flat silk patches of variable shape and density. We present experiments suggesting sufficient correlation between topographical surface features, spinning geometry and fibre density. The research represents a scalable approach for optimization-driven fibre-based structural design and suggests a biology-driven strategy for material computation.

title Large-Scale Lightweight Transformable Structures
source ACADIA 2017: DISCIPLINES & DISRUPTION [Proceedings of the 37th Annual Conference of the Association for Computer Aided Design in Architecture (ACADIA) ISBN 978-0-692-96506-1] Cambridge, MA 2-4 November, 2017), pp. 572- 581
summary This paper presents strategies for the creation of large-scale transformable structures. In particular we work to leverage material properties and novel construction techniques to induce transformation. We employ flexible biaxial braided geometries to create interconnected large-scale textile surfaces. These braided networks distribute load forces via their internal friction, allowing for uniform structural transformation without the need for complicated mechanical linkages or electromechanical actuation. The ultimate range of these structures has been simulated with computational tools and correlated with physical load testing. We present various applications and configurations of these transforming structures that demonstrate their utility and a new attitude toward the creation of lightweight morphable structures.
