©Heat Actuated Responsive Facade
Considering the high demand for more adaptable and reconfigurable structures, this research project focuses on the design and development of highly deformable materials/patterns(auxetics). These adaptive structures introduce the potential for highly active/deformable structures/objects that have the ability to respond to an external stimuli, structures that have multiple stages based on their adaptation mode( environment,…). Auxetics are materials that have a negative Poisson ration, meaning that if they get stretched they get thicker .perpendicular to the applied force. Auxetics behaviors is caused by internal structure and can be found from Nano, to Macro scale.
