          These simulations (carried out in Kangaroo in Grasshopper) simulate the surface deformations of a modulated ( four kinds of modulations ) composite sandwich panel. The panel consists of a top layer of Aluminium (visible) and a bottom layer of sponge (invisible) The mesh colouration visually distinguishes the strained from the less-strained panels indicating which areas suffer most drastic deformations in the modulating process. BLUE = no change (close to flat) RED = lots of change WHITE = mid range marker

            In this simulation boundaries of scale are surpassed and what would physically be imposible to perceive (due to the scale of prototype) is visually represented in an immersive 'fly-by' sequence. Altering deformations within the material system evoke a sense of interiority (once scale boundaries are surpassed) and provoke speculative architectural applications.

                This was the first application of material properties into the algorithm. Surface deformation is parametrically controlled and the output surface models the actual material deformation.

                  This script was developed to have a surface as input, and based on the material properties (6,5mm plywood), the program would output a pattern to achieve the input geometry and a number grid with all spacers and sizes needed.
