deciphering inherent properties and selecting forks based on geometry optimisation
Present construction materials are over-processed (agglomerated timber, reinforced concrete, composites,etc.), wasting tremendous amounts of energy and matter in favor of hyper-sensitive applications.
By carefully listening inherent natural properties, a new tectonic standard is arising.
Design can again be informed by individual uniqueness of existing raw materials and discarded resources.
