“structured creature” is a small prototype for interactive architecture of future.
This small geometrical solid, though its structure is exposed as-is, wriggles slowly as if a creature. Three clone structures seem to move as i f they act independently of each other or they keep time each other. From the look of them, it is indicated that, in future, architectural units that evolved into “organism involving human” interacts each other.
The motion is designed by changing equilibrium of internal tension and compression in tensegrity structure with artificial muscles made of shape-memory-alloy.
