2007
Smart Geometry Group International Workshop

This research project is based on the use of origami as an aid to understand symmetry groups that could be applied to design through the use of computational systems like GC. This structure is based on the idea of the behavior of a hedgehog skin, in which each cell movement is interconnected and dependent. As a result what we have it is not only a variable cell but also a variable field of application.

These extensible systems could have applications in Architecture as variable structures that could change their appearance as a reaction to different stimuli such as the number of people contained in a given space, or the expansion – contraction of such space as a response to atmospheric conditions.
