  2. The Silk Pavilion explores the relationship between digital and biological fabrication on product and architectural scales.

    The primary structure was created of 26 polygonal panels made of silk threads laid down by a CNC (Computer-Numerically Controlled) machine. Inspired by the silkworm’s ability to generate a 3D cocoon out of a single multi-property silk thread (1km in length), the overall geometry of the pavilion was created using an algorithm that assigns a single continuous thread across patches providing various degrees of density.

    Overall density variation was informed by the silkworm itself deployed as a biological “printer” in the creation of a secondary structure. A swarm of 6,500 silkworms was positioned at the bottom rim of the scaffold spinning flat non-woven silk patches as they locally reinforced the gaps across CNC-deposited silk fibers. Following their pupation stage the silkworms were removed. Resulting moths can produce 1.5 million eggs with the potential of constructing up to 250 additional pavilions.

    Affected by spatial and environmental conditions including geometrical density as well as variation in natural light and heat, the silkworms were found to migrate to darker and denser areas. Desired light effects informed variations in material organization across the surface area of the structure. A season-specific sun path diagram mapping solar trajectories in space dictated the location, size and density of apertures within the structure in order to lock-in rays of natural light entering the pavilion from South and East elevations. The central oculus is located against the East elevation and may be used as a sun-clock.

    Parallel basic research explored the use of silkworms as entities that can “compute” material organization based on external performance criteria. Specifically, we explored the formation of non-woven fiber structures generated by the silkworms as a computational schema for determining shape and material optimization of fiber-based surface structures.

    Research and Design by the Mediated Matter Research Group at the MIT Media Lab in collaboration with Prof. Fiorenzo Omenetto (TUFTS University) and Dr. James Weaver (WYSS Institute, Harvard University). Mediated Matter researchers include Markus Kayser, Jared Laucks, Carlos David Gonzalez Uribe, Jorge Duro-Royo and Neri Oxman (Director).

    Love It or Leave It

    Long are the days
    When you're turning away
    From the reasons you strung

    Long is the way
    When you're aching to say
    But your teeth bite your tongue

    Loud is the wind
    In your ears as you spin
    As you look for the sun

    Loud are the skies
    As you thunder your cries
    When your prayers are sung

    Hard is the floor
    As the waves pound the shore
    Of your wounds

    Roll up your sleeve
    It's hard to believe
    But it's you

    Love it or leave it
    You got to believe it

    My Oh My! It hurts sometimes
    My Oh My! It hurts sometimes
    I think I'm running out of time
    Before I'm gonna lose my mind

    Slow is the night
    When you reach for the light
    But the Dark lingers on

    Slow is the bite
    Of the words that you write
    When it's finally dawn

    How can you swim
    When the waters are streaming
    In you

    Roll up your sleeve
    Now love it or leave it
    It's you

    Love it or leave it
    You got to believe it

    My Oh My! It hurts sometimes
    My Oh My! It hurts sometimes
    I think I'm running out of time
    Before I'm gonna lose my mind
