Title:New lens on Architecture
Author(s):Vasudevan, Ramya Pattanur
Subject(s):Architecture
Abstract:Observing nature's most beautiful and remarkable creations makes us think of the most fundamental questions like: How does a flower bloom? How do birds fly? or How do worms move? Building structures need not be static, they too can have motion. I believe solutions to many challenges that we face today in architecture can be solved by understanding the mechanisms found in nature. An exercise in a graduate Architectural Structures course required me to build models of three different deployable forms. This image shows my constructed model of an eight-sided Hoberman Sphere which was photographed by keeping a spectacle lens in front of the camera lens. The model achieves mobility because of the geometry and connection details. My research is to understand the deployable mechanisms found in nature in order to create transformable and adaptive architecture. Understanding nature has put a new lens on my architectural and design thinking.
