Multi-Scaled Environmental Variables Governing Growth

Mohit Jotwani




This project explores how the analysis and design of multi-scale environmental conditions of building surfaces can evolve strategies to develop and augment conditions suitable for the growth of bryophytes. Micro shading of exposed surfaces by carving or extruding are used to modify these conditions based on real world environmental and geographical data sets including orientation, solar radiation, surface temperature and water retention/channelling.


Repeated cycles of analysis, modification and simulation lead to evolving tectonics at multiple scales to illicit the desired conditions and locations for growth.
