Tramas expansibles

Muñoz, Patricia;


Different disciplines have studied tilings and tessellations throughout the centuries. Only in the last fifty years, hinged tilings have been scarcely examined and mainly through virtual models and animations. In the research project that relates Morphology and Digital Fab- rication we have built physical models in rubber sheets with laser cutting, investigating the possibilities of creating new tilings through different transformation strategies. We have also experimented changing the level of symmetry of the tessellations while keeping the property of expansion. Several applications are being explored, mainly in product design and teaching experiences.
