summary This ongoing investigation aims to learn from nature novel material organizations and structural systems in order to develop innovative architectural system. We developed a multidisciplinary approach, using scientific analysis and design research and prototyping. We focus on the study of a “living fossil” fish, whose armor system is so efficient it has remained almost unchanged for millions of years. We investigate its morphological characteristics, its structural properties, the assembly mechanisms and the underlying material properties in order to derive new principles to design new enhanced structural systems. We use micro computerized tomography and scanning electron microscopy to observe microstructures, parametric design to reconstruct the data into digital models and then several 3D printing technologies to prototype systems with high flexibility and adaptive capabilities, proposing new gradual material interfaces and transitions to embed performative capabilities and multifunctional potentials.

title CeramiSKIN: Biophilic Topological Potentials for Microscopic and Macroscopic Data in Ceramic Cladding
source First International Conference on Critical Digital: What Matters(s)? - 18-19 April 2008, Harvard University Graduate School of Design, Cambridge (USA), pp. 65-76
summary CeramiSKIN is an inter-disciplinary investigation examining recursive patterns found in organic matter. Through the use of digital capture and translation techniques, these biophilic systems may serve as topological generators for structural and ornamental consequences well-suited to mass-customizable ceramic cladding systems for architecture. Digital information is acquired through laser scanning and confocal electron microscopy, then deformed using particle physics engines and parametric transformations to create a range of effects promulgated through digital fabrication techniques. This inquiry is primarily concerned with two questions: Is it possible that natural systems may be digitally captured and translated into biophilic structural forms and/or ornamental effects that may foster beneficial responses in humans? / Since natural orders eschew rigid manifold geometries in favor of compound plastic shapes, is it possible to fabricate mass-customized, large-scale biophilic ceramic cladding from organic digital data?

title Towards Genetic Posthuman Frontiers in Architecture & Design
source ACADIA // 2016: POSTHUMAN FRONTIERS: Data, Designers, and Cognitive Machines [Proceedings of the 36th Annual Conference of the Association for Computer Aided Design in Architecture (ACADIA) ISBN 978-0-692-77095-5] Ann Arbor 27-29 October, 2016, pp. 450-459
summary This paper includes a brief history about the beginning of the practical application of real genetics to architecture and design. Genetics introduces a privileged point-of-view for both biology and the digital realm, and these two are the main characters (the protagonists) in our posthuman society. With all of its positive and negative aspects, the study of genetics is becoming the cornerstone of our posthuman future precisely because it is at the intersection of both fields, nature and computation, and because it is a science that can command both of them from within—one practically and the other one theoretically. Meanwhile, through genetics and biodigital architecture and design, we are searching at the frontiers of knowledge for planetary benefit. In order to enlighten us about these issues, the hero image (Figure 1) has been created within the framework of scanning electron microscope (SEM) research on the genesic level, where masses of cells organize themselves into primigenic structures. Microscope study was carried out at the same time as the aforementioned genetic research in order to find structures and to learn typologies that could be of interest for architecture, here illustrated as an alternative landscape of the future. Behind this hero image is the laboratory’s first effort to begin the real application of genetics to architecture, thereby fighti hti ng for the sustainability of our entire planet and a better world

title Del microscopio electrónico a la estrategia digital en arquitectura [From the electron microscope to the digital strategy in architecture]
source SIGraDi 2016 [Proceedings of the 20th Conference of the Iberoamerican Society of Digital Graphics - ISBN: 978-956-7051-86-1] Argentina, Buenos Aires 9 - 11 November 2016, pp.734-742
summary The knowledge of when the amorphous masses of cells organize themselves into a first structural level is relevant for the architect. The architecture must also attend structural and economic stresses, following efficiency, as living beings do: something that we can learn from nature ("biolearning"), although that level can only be reached with microscope. So this becomes a useful tool for architectural research. Examples of this are presented here, seeking first to discover, analyze and evaluate microscopic structures of plants and animals. On that knowledge we can make emerge the digital design of real architectural projects, using computational strategies, also morphogenetic.

title Network Computing: A Tutorial Review
source IEE Electron. Commun. Eng. J., February 2001, 13, (1), pp. 5-15
summary Network computing is not synonymous with the overhyped network computer that failed to capture a significant market share from PCs. One of its major benefits is the ability to tailor applications to the capabilities of heterogeneous client devices. Given the very fast growing mobile computing market, with its numerous and diverse terminal types, network computing could at last realise its full potential.

title Atomic Revolution: Electron Orbital Theory Based on The Vector Equilibrium or A Classical View of the Atom as a Tensegrity Structure
source International Conference on Generative Art
summary The theory herein offers an alternative to the conventionally accepted concept of an ambiguous electron cloud and postulates a rather well defined structure and motion of electrons around the atomic nucleus that might explain how and why atoms bond with each other to form molecules as they do. If tested and verified, the model could be used to not only predict molecular configurations but also, in reverse procedure, design and engineer artificial atoms and molecules of immense potential, such as of superconductivity.
