BIOS Explores 3D Printing

By on October 22nd, 2009 in blog


The BIOS Collective is a

working group of academic and professional designers exploring the application of biological patterns to architecture.

We’ve seen a bit of this collision before where natural things inspire designs made real by modern 3D fabrication techniques. In this example, designer Charles Lee is working on a tower study for Ideate Inc., and is using a ZCorp 650 to print samples. The BIOS blog is quite interesting to follow, as it includes numerous examples of natural designs colliding with architecture.
