Video 1: Animation of the main design tool used for the final form-finding process. It is able to implement not only the principles and constraints we developed in the fields of biomimetics, fabrication and material behavior beforehand, but also architectural intentions and spatial qualities.

Software used: Rhinoceros, Grasshopper and Kangaroo
