Plant-inspired Kinetic Systems for Architecture


Zheliazkova, Maia; Savova, Biliana; Naboni, Roberto;


This paper explores kinetic mechanisms which enable building systems with features belonging to the living systems, such as resilience and adaptivity. Adopting a bio-inspired approach, the research employs plants as biological models for the development of multi-performance kinetic structures. Nature-based kinetic principles are transferred at the micro, meso and macro scale, informing a compliant bilayer cellular membrane. Through the synthesis of environmental pressure and interior emergent requisites, an adaptable organic skin is here conceptualized to mediate environmental conditions such as energy flows and lighting in a dynamic way
