This is a spherodendron structure, its creation was inspired by the forces of nature that drive the formation of complex networks, both physical structural networks and networks that exist as behavioral frameworks.

From the nano-scale Actin filament networks of cells to the mega macro webs that make up the universe to the internet, nonlinear networks play a central role in everything. I designed this branching system to help visualize and better understand how networks evolve. i did not know before hand the analogies that would become apparent,

The glowing elements (nodes) indicate dendritic branching events. note: the branching events form concentric layers within the spherical structure. This layer/shell structure emerged from the parent structure.
Non-linear network structures are physically strong and have an important role in future of structural engineering.
