Cellular Complexity is an installation which exhibits the potential of cellular geometries at a spatial architectural scale. Cellular systems exist within the organization of biological systems in a multitude of scales from the nano to the micro and macro; they embody performative properties structurally, thermally and acoustically. . . .
Announcing the 2013 Faculty Winner of 2×8 Student Exhibition Design Competition
AIA Los Angeles is announces that UCLA lecturer, Julia Koerner’s project, “Cellular Complexity”, in Collaboration with Marie Boltenstern and Kais Al-Rawi, is the winning entry for the 11 year anniversary of the 2×8 Exhibition Design. The Installation will be completed by February 2014.

suckerPUNCH: Describe your project:
kais AL-RAWI, julia KOERNER, & marie BOLTENSTERN: This project demonstrates research and development of a single architectural system that addresses through its variation architectural conditions within an urban context, containing diverse programmatic changes. The variations are created through the use of efficient closest packing geometries within a cellular system that varies in gradients of size, porosity, thickness and layers.
