Material & Space Synthesis Strategies based on Evolutionary Developmental Biology

Material & Space

Material & Space, a paper by Sean Ahlquist and Sean Ahlquist proposes synthesis strategies based on
evolutionary developmental biology. A material system can be defined as a set of self-organized materials, defining a certain spatial arrangement.

Post-forming Composite Morphologies: Materialization and design methods for inducing form through textile material behavior

Composite Morphologies

The research described in this paper by Sean Ahlquist et al. embeds properties of both elastic textile and bending-resistant composites within a single material structure. This is accomplished through a composite forming process.
