GrAB - Growing As Building
is the follow-up project of Biornametics. The aim is to take dynamics and growth patterns from nature and apply them to architecture with the goal of creating a new living architecture. The results of the first workshop Visions for Architecture, Which Grows will be presented in the exhibition. The research team calls their strategy Design by Scientific Research, an approach that enables scientific know-ledge to be employed as departure points for the design process and thereby generates potentials for novel product developments.
The project Biornametics investigates new ways of incor- porating scientific knowledge and creative production methods into architecture. The installation on display in the exhibition, in which architectural concepts are defined by patterns from nature, is representative of the work in this project. The biological principle of stimulus-response is portrayed in select zones of the installation where artificial leaves interact with the visitors.
