1| Research on radiolarians
I will be focussing on the growing process of radiolarians and the specific constructional aspects of their skeletons in order to decide on the input of my research.
- Inventory of different radiolarians. Which type has the most potential to be transformed into a building structure?
- Analysis of this specific structure. What is the exact shape? (modelling in G.C.)
- How did this skeleton grow? (link to production process of the architectural construction)
- What different functions do the features of the skeleton fulfil? (are these functions also to be applied on a building structure? what modifications have to be made?)
I will be trying to model a simple radiolarion structure in G.C. in order to get used to the software and get aware of the possibilities. Later on I will make a link to the structural capacities of the results with the help of Diana.
