title Anisotropic Operations: A study in directed material weakening for solar shading
source RESPECTING FRAGILE PLACES [29th eCAADe Conference Proceedings / ISBN 978-9-4912070-1-3], University of Ljubljana, Faculty of Architecture (Slovenia) 21-24 September 2011, pp.595-602

summary Deliberately introduced unidirectional material weakening is explored as a means of producing material properties which exploit natural material tendencies rather than as a means to compensate for them. Such anisotropic operations take natural systems as a point of departure for man-made approaches to the augmentation of building performance in the realm of solar shading, but also for the creation of materially complex architectural environments.
