Project started with optimization experiments of double layer structures. Potentials arising from such redundancies were used to set structure in motion. Structural behavior was observed and recorded when additional weight is introduced to the system. Adjustments to the overall geometry and number of connections between components, in conjunction with elastic nature of the material, were used to generate and gain control over the swaying motion of the structure.  At first, the movement was vertical due to the force of gravity but with the structural tuning motion deflected from the vertical path and acquired twisting trajectory. Parametric studies were carried on […]
