Based on the differentiated trabeculae morphology and the individual fiber arrangements, a double layered modular system was generated for implementation in an architectural prototype. Through the development of computational design and simulation tools, both the robotic fabrication characteristics and the abstracted biomimetic principles could be simultaneously integrated in the design process.
Glass and carbon fiber reinforced polymers were chosen as building material, due to their high performance qualities (high strength to weight ratio) and the potential to generate differentiated material properties through fiber placement variation. Together with their unrestrained moldability, fiber reinforced polymers are suitable to implement the complex geometries and material organizations of the abstracted natural construction principles. Conventional fabrication methods for fiber composite elements require a mold to define form. However, this method proves to be unsuitable to transfer natural construction principles into architectural applications since they usually involve unique elements that would require extensive formwork and prohibitively complex molds.

Anyone who flew the Me-109, and anyone who faced it in battle, would be inclined to agree. The P-47 inspired awe. The Zero earned loyalty. The Spitfire gained devotion. The Me-109 commanded respect.

A pair of nucleobases can be combined to form different silver(I)-mediated base pairs, depending on the nucleic acid sequence. If the complementary strands align in a parallel-stranded fashion, two silver(I) ions are incorporated. An antiparallel alignment leads to a metal-mediated base pair with one silver(I) ion and a synergistic hydrogen bond. The cover picture highlights these findings, showing the central building of the University of Münster in the background.
