The paper discusses mathematical form generation as an academic methodology to develop new approaches to architectural design. The academic design studio ?Math objects? investigates the relationship between complex 3d-surfaces and mathematics in order to expand the formal repertoire of architecture. It claims that the process of form generation can be seen as an autonomous entity, which is independent from an overall strategy or any a priori meaning. Architecture has always originated from a co
The paper investigates knotting techniques as a method for generating wall systems. The essential matter of the paper is to demonstrate the potential of knotted, algorithmic architecture through different research studies, which share the knotting of linear elements as a common methodology for design development. Combinatorial Productivity implies that by combining linear elements hidden properties of a system emerge and thereby the system becomes productive.
Building a True-to-Life Butterfly for a Habitat Diorama
When a real butterfly specimen in the coyote diorama was deemed beyond restoration, a decision was made to create a model. Conservation Fellow Bethany Palumbo explains the process, which included photocopying Museum specimens for the top-wing view, hand painting the underside, and building up the butterfly body with layers of glue. The restored Hall of North American Mammals reopened October 2012. CREDITS: PHOTOGRAPHY AMNH/Conservation Department VIDEO AMNH/J. Bauerle S. Sfarra
