When I am walking outside I enjoy seeing the fruit trees in full bloom, hearing birds sing and the careful buzzing of insects. Spring cleaning in my house, birds creating nests in my garden; ignoring the yearly returning hay fever, I love this time of year of new beginnings and new life. I wonder how do animals work around their (new / 3D printed) houses?
The last project is from Reef Design Lab, a design studio led by Alex Goad. It is an ongoing project in which the studio is developing 3D printed habitat designs for seawalls. RDL is researching how they can design seawalls to maximize the colonization of native species leading to greater biodiversity. MARS, the 3D printed project in the top image is part of the exhibition Broken Nature: Design Takes on Human Survival, taking place at the XXII Triennale in Milan running until September 1, 2019.
