for research:

getting really into metabolists, shells, sheds, nervi, bucky...

i think the potential of each movement, type and architect might be worth reconsidering given the relatively new and powerful capacity for iterative design and fabrication. call it parametric, maybe, but that might be an awful name. i did a formal and programmatic analysis a while back with luis on kurokawa's helical city.

the analysis would be much better if it were speculative. how might kurokawa's proposal benefit from iterative design? different generative unit. different module shape and size. potentials for greater flexibility in terms of form, structure and capacity for growth.

same with some other things i've been looking at.

tensegrity dome- bucky

da climatron- bucky
