thread and epoxy resin with bending and twisting capacities, which can cover big spans without columns or joints.

This system is created by arranging the wet cotton thread with epoxy resin in a specific way and the result is a pattern with many holes with different diameters.

We can use this system to develop and rebuild communities affected by the ever-growing impact of climate change, military conflicts, rapid urbanization, poverty, natural disasters and economic crises in both developed and developing countries.

The system is responsive and adaptive to many environmental conditions. Due to the porosity in the system it allows the daylight to enter the building to save energy. We use arduino to control the amount of light inside the building during the design process based on each site's conditions.
