The Bubble Room

An underwater dome, shaped by the buoyancy force of an oxygen bubble. This beautiful piece of subaqueous architecture has been build by Jordan Needham and his familiy at the bottom of a Nevada mountain lake. Found on the boingboing blog.

The pictures are screenshots from the movie below.

Parametric Paperstrip

This parametric model represents the geometry of a twisted straight paperstrip. Length, width, and twist are adjustable.

Some example strips. By definition these surfaces are developable.

The paperstrip as generative element. (c) by Michael Hensel and Achim Menges, Arch+ 188 p.20.

Download the definition here. Another interesting approach has been done by Daniel Piker.
