This paper by Jane Scott describes the framework behind the development of a series of knitted prototypes inspired by the biomimetic model of the hygromorph. Three moisture responsive pieces are described which use properties of wood veneer.
The project “Responsive Surface Structure” by Steffen Reichert is based on an experimental, inductive design approach. The project aims at creating a differentiated skin structure that can change its porosity in response to changes in ambient humidity and moisture.
This thesis by Xiangru Chen is to design a mix-use pavilion, which detects occupancy and lighting/temperature conditions, and then transforms its structure in shape and scale to satisfy the spatial demands for the use.
