‘Learning as it Grows: autonomous design for additive manufacturing’
A new show now open in Tokyo, showing my latest research in industrial design, production speeds and material optimisation.
The new STEM 45° objects collection, which will be displayed were designed using microscopically 3D translated bamboo micro-structure geometry and informed by my personal aesthetic and a line of 3D algorithms that are laying the foundations for a new type of autonomous design strategy. It is a new growth algorithm that is and branching at a 45° and evolving within the machines and material constraints.
The project opens the discussion around future industrial design and architecture processes at both large and small scales, where automated processes will be fed by a combination of human and biological intelligence, designing a new type of tool-path for the robots to follow.

With many thanks to professors Julia Cassim for the kind invitation to host the research at Kyoto D-Lab and to Dr Yoko Okahisa, Dr Yukihiro Nishikawa and Inoue Tomohiro of KIT and Kyoto D-Lab, for the bio material science, microscopic data processing and Digital fabrication.
