The course was open to all masters-level students of the university incorporating interdisciplinary knowledge of technological methods, structure know-how, architecture, environmental design and art. The focus of the course was to encapsulate and broaden the methodologies, which the students currently are used to.
The course aimed to generate a series of botanical architectural species; utilizing its structures and processes within nature in spatial and structural design from micro scale (millimeters and centimeters) to building scale (tens and hundreds of meters). Using techniques of accumulation, mutation, transformation, repetition and more.
