Competition entry, January 2015
We are working on an underwater version of the SPACEPLATES project. Lloyd Godson, marine biologist and Australian Geographic Adventurer of the Year will live underwater in a self repairing underwater habitat in Sydney harbour to inspire young people to conserve Australia's biodiversity, especially in the marine environment. The structure is designed by N55 and Anne Romme in collaboration with Anne Bagger, M.Sc. PhD.
Model: HDF, 2mm, lasercut
Naturally occurring geometries continues to inspire. This is an example of the SPACEPLATES system tiled as a nautilus-like form. Surfaces with negative Gauss-curvature requires special attention, and in this preliminary sketch, only the part of the nautilus with positive Gauss-curvature has been solved.
SPACEPLATES Greenhouse Prototype covered in ice at Prag's Have
The SPACEPLATES Greenhouse Prototype was used for a site-specific sound installation by Swedish artist Cecilia Jonsson at the LAK – Festival for Nordic Sound Art, at Prags Boulevard 43, 2012. The installation was called "A dome can be thought of as an arch, rotated around its central vertical axis".
