  • concept
  • research concept
    Molecular biology is a source of myriad well-validated structures & shapes
    These forms can be deconstructed or abstracted and used as building blocks to create novel wearables and explore unprecedented applications.
  • design questions
    How can biological structures and forms be meaningfully deconstructed and applied to wearables?
    What novel and functional architectures can be created
    When thinking of these geometries as building blocks, which elements must be held constant and which may be stretched or changed?
    What applications might there be for such forms in other realms?
  • viruses
    Helical
    Polyhedral
    Enveloped helical
    Enveloped polyhedral
  • methodology
