restless Tectonics

This project is based on a research on   the geometric relationships responsible for the tendencies of “Auxetic” materials which demonstrate the fascinating property of expanding when stretched. The interactions within the structure of the material that give rise to auxetic behavior are later adopted and adapted to develop a geometrical model, responsive to the application of energy. The project relies on computational modeling, material testing and prototyping that derives a series of  adaptive 3D patterns. The periodic order of the patterns lets each shape cut to work with its adjoining shape, expanding and rotating for an amount that enables the formation of a complex curvature.
