    Repetitive Patterns: Screen Systems

    Armando Feb 11 '06 0

    The use of magnifying technology has revealed the structural complexity of geological, organic, and synthetic materials on the Macro and Micro scales. These structures are based upon a repetition of cellular units that transform relative to structural stresses applied to it. Designers such as Gyorgy Kepes and Erwin Hauer have studied the relationship between modular systems found in nature and applied the patterns to visual studies and architectural screen systems in the 1960's. The research of our work will be extended into the contemporary situation where digital technology affords a new level of formal complexity and tectonic intricacy to be explored and fabricated.
