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.
