Voronoi Introduction

I am currenlty working on a thesis which focuses on 'responsive' architecture - that is, architecture which transforms to enhance temporal, environmental, programatic, or social changes. Last week I attempted to use a sponge as a model for a scaling transformative structure, and i needed some cellular scripts to study it.

These Voronoi shapes are interesting enough, especially the three-dimensional models. In the end however, I believe i am going to trash the sponge metaphor, in favor of an adaptive tensegrity structural system, which also has roots in nature (pun intended).
