AIASF / Parametric Canopy

BIOS Design Collective is a working group of academic and professional designers exploring the application of biological patterns to architecture.

“Parametric design meets recycled material in the form of 2000+ plastic beer cups, salvaged from the SF Outside Lands Concert and used for a temporary installation at the AIASF’s Architecture in the City Festival. The support structure is a steel cable mesh, and the cups are attached with custom laser-cut clips. The materials budget was less than the cost of the keg we brought to the installation party!”
