Abstract:
Through the study of geometry and its relation to the sciences a designer can find structural and aesthetic applications. The properties of symmetry and proportionality present within crystal lattice structures enable the designer to edit complex, natural forms. The reproduction of highly symmetric objects can nourish the skill of craftsmanship and the virtue of patience. The Platonic and Archimedean solids provide an archetypical catalogue of the most basic structures. Studying the structure by which individual cells aggregate can shed perspective on larger systems and can help a designer understand them. Some arrangements exhibit quasi-periodicity and hierarchical growth. These quasi-periodic aggregates are of additional interest as they must consist of at least two unit cells and do not demonstrate translational symmetry. Reproduction of these structures can be manifested in any medium and scale and thus provides a vast framework. A variety of sculptures influenced by the properties of quasi-periodicity and space packing are designed and presented.
