The atom is essentially the base component of the universe, and throughout time we have sought to understand the way it behaves.
One of the most interesting things is how different combinations of them create the infinite variety of forms in the universe.
When they are combined, elements form molecules or compounds.
These compounds consist of several nuclei connected by the sharing of electrons.
This project attempts to illustrate how infinite forms are made using simple rules and a limited number of components
‘Nuclei’ were formed by folding hexagons,
which were then connected by ‘electrons’.
Like compounds, rules are applied, for example there were only 4
sizes of nucleus and the distance between the centres of each
nucleus was made constant to allow for variations in porosity.
This was a tool to enhance the compressive circulation pattern
At night, the nuclei can project light or media from their centres, whereas during the
day they allow varying degrees of sunlight into the areas below.
