The camel, polar bear and the blade: the project aims to link to the content of the program: biomedical research through the application of biomimicry (adaptation of biological systems and procedures in human artefacts) in the process generation architecture. They take these three bio-types as reference for similar adaptive systems. The camel as a paradigm of functional section. The defense against extreme weather causes the appearance of bumps as storage reserves (water, food, grease, etc …);

Just as the anatomy of the camel which expands its role requires it, (and in other animal, would be strain-malformation-a functional, …) in this building are generated lumps and hollows where the function itself also required: backpacks of various sizes appear on deck (to accommodate the multiplicity of machines that a building technological facilities as it needs) and hollows in the ground floor and basement (access to storage, loading and unloading of trucks, access to inner courtyard basement light tickets, etc …) … well, the building is deformed to set a figure able to function effectively, even able to mutate into strains in their future, without losing its essence.

The bear skin as an example of multifunctional

The skin should maintain a stable internal temperature of the bear, despite the continuing cold outside, and achieves this through a thick skin black, covered with transparent hollow hairs that hold warm air inside: our vision is of white hair but is due to accumulation, and also blends well with ice and snow.

The blade as integration between structural resolution and flexibility

For the design of the perforated aluminum plates are used on the third biotype: Like the leaves of trees, these plates of large size (4500 x 800 mm) and low thickness (3 mm) must be self-supporting, lightweight, flexible and borne erect for it … the mix of origami, allows the generation of planes, folds and nerves, stiffening the set and taking the necessary geometry to keep the sun and allow the vision.
