Hexagons: The structural possibilities of a uniform shape

The geometry of Islamic arts is undoubtedly a fascinating thing in itself, but to me it felt even more interesting exploring one geometric shape in particular. A hexagon is not a particularly exciting shape generally. Its regularity and inability to

Thermoregulate with grace: butterfly wing scale structure

“As we as architects begin to think about designing not an object, but a process inspired by nature to generate objects, in short we will have no constraints. With the processes in our hands that allow us to create structures

Scales of the butterfly

Butterflies are some of the most unique and complicated insect there are. It is one of few insects that goes through a full metamorphosis, which means going from a larva to a chrysalis and finally evolves into to a butterfly. All off

Shaping light and thermal energy

” In climates where daylight was plentiful and bright, architects responded by reducing the size of opening and using a medium to diffuse light. Such medium included grilles or glazing. (…) There were therefore great changes in lighting levels within
