Coral studies

Coral studies

The structure of coral was explored further in order to understand how it works as a customisable organism. A number of conceptual sketch models were developed, exploring the depths of coral lattices, the intertwining of algae and their natural colours and forms.

These led onto precedent research, where three key developments became the inspirations for the project. Wohnhaus in Tokio by Satoko Shinohara
and SAU Taller de Arquitectura’s Casa Migdia both offer customisable internal spaces through partition walls with fixed services. Additionally the
Wohnhaus facade can be customised by the occupant. The materiality of the scheme was predominantly influenced by Landscape for Living in
Wei├čenbach by AL1 Architects, that combines the use of polycarbonate and timber.
