This class focused on using marine biology as precedent to construct a component, its functionality and its locomotion. After designing two initial component systems, a threshold was applied to generate a combination with a proposed architectural function. This system was built up by stacking five pieces of 15”x15” Baltic birch wood, and milled using RhinoCAM and the CNC machine. Following this initial system, we formed a group and produced a hybridized design scheme, with the proposed function of water filtration and a twisting locomotion of the component system for a composite prototype. This system was built up using 12”x24” Baltic birch wood, clear acrylic plastic, and rubber, and milled using RhinoCAM and the CNC machine. While the wood is used for its stability and connection capabilities, the acyclic functions as a light penetration layer with minimal representation. However, it is the rubber that performs most successfully in its capacity to twist and torque.
