MSSM Associate, Revano Satria has published his Masters of Architecture thesis project in China based magazine, Urban Flux. His research explores the geometric opportunities provided by cellular solid morphologies in the development of structural and urban habitats.
"By definition, a cellular solid is an interconnected network of struts or plates that form the faces of cells. Low-density cellular solids appear widely in nature. One example is in the porous areas of human bone, called cancellous bone. Bone organised in this configuration minimises overall weight while providing structural capacity to bear high loads. Based on the many biological models of cellular solids, synthetic materials have been created, such as honeycomb material used in the aerospace industry as lightweight structural components."
