Time Dune is a pavilion proposal for the Burning Man Festival in the Nevada Desert. The proposal is the culmination of research into the use of salt as a structural...
Sanguis Et Pulvis
Sanguis Et Pulvis proposes the large scale solidification of migrating sand dunes in Egypt using a new architectural material: animal blood. Waste blood from halal...
Animal blood was for a long time the main source of natural glue before the advent of synthetic glues. This research project explores the possibility of creating a...
The second phase of research into the use of crystals as a binding agent. These experiments explore the use of sodium thiosulphate salt to bind sand grains into a...
The angle of repose is the angle at which sand becomes stable due to the friction between grains. These experiments explore the interference patterns created by...
Mixed granular materials display a unique ability to self sort when poured freely. This is due to differing angles of repose possessed by the range of grains. These...
Digital Pouring is the computational simulation of the Crest Pouring technique developed in previous material research experiments. Using Real Flow fluid dynamics...
Crystals have huge potential for development as an architectural material. This research focuses on the manner in which crystals grow from multiple seeding points,...
In order to create convertible roof structures using fabrics it in necessary to fully understand the way in which fabrics bunch. These experiments develop a...
