The outcome of the project is a concept of a space that would build itself. Kenneth Cheung in his PhD, titled ”DigitalCellular Solids: reconfigurable composite materials.”,  developed a structural modular system out of two-dimensional crosses forming a rigid network. Cheung proposed that his approach could be used in...
