  • Concept:Biology => well-validated structures for intelligent designCan biological structures and forms can be deconstructed or abstracted to building blocks for the creation of novel/unprecedented and functional wearables?Biological structure and forms can be deconstructed and applied to wearables to create novel, functional shapes. If biology can provide the inspiration for intelligent, modern design, I would like to explore this premise: using biological structures and forms as the building blocks for creating novel and functional wearables.

    3. 3. research concept <br />Biology is a source of myriad well-validated structures & shapes<br />These forms can be deconstructed or abstracted and used as building blocks to create novel wearables and explore unprecedented applications.<br />
    4. 4. design questions<br />How can biological structures and forms be meaningfully deconstructed and applied to wearables?<br />What novel and functional architectures can be created<br />When thinking of these geometries as building blocks, which elements must be held constant and which may be stretched or changed?<br />What applications might there be for such forms in other realms? <br />
