ABOUT THE EARTH'S CRUST

The Earth's Crust is a design research forum focused on the creation of architectural environments that explore the intersection of emergent technological, ecological and cultural impetuses. Our processes involve the re-calibration of digital tools and platforms to perform functions that go beyond direct translations of Euclidean geometry from digital space into the physical world. By employing non-linear procedures that tightly knit material, chemical or biological behaviour with software and digital fabrication, our machine instructions and designs are not defined exclusively by conventional Cartesian geometry but also by procedural methodologies. This method of moving between multiple platforms permits the integration of analogue complexities at multiple resolutions achieving a new level of hyper-intricacy. We aim to resolve digital banality through the recognition of architecture and its artefacts as tactile and entropic entities in a larger milieu of sensory experiences.
