suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.
miro STRAKA: By adding architectural meanings to emotional understandings of delights, spectrum of functions is created. Selecting desired percentual share creates composition, which affects fetal disposition. Seed is basic spatial characteristic determining shape evolving process and final diversity. After successful hatching of basic form, skeletal system is designed, growing thin, rib-like structure, where loads are minimal, transfering loads through spine into thicker, fluent pelvis and grounding it with long, strong femur. Skin is assembled by pillows with liquid, which circulates through vascular system based on temperature requirements.
Dependent on fetus age, floors are grown along skeletal system—at age 2 approximate floor height to fulfill composition requirements is 1m, at 6 it is 3m and so on. Therefore anything under age 5 is immature and more than 8 is excessive. Areas percentual share is compared to composition, and functions, lost in the process, are found again.
