slimy_sculpinScaled sculpins (genus Icelus) are a group of small benthic fishes (up to 25 cm) living in cold waters. They are mainly found in the North Pacific, with some species in the North Atlantic. They are characterized by a large, laterally compressed head and small spines. The lateral line is present and the dorsal fin base are dotted with scutes (plates).

The benthic zone is the ecological region at the lowest level of a body of water such as an ocean or a lake, including the sediment surface and some sub-surface layers. Organisms living in this zone are called benthos. They generally live in close relationship with the substrate bottom; many such organisms are permanently attached to the bottom. The superficial layer of the soil lining the given body of water is an integral part of the benthic zone, as it influences greatly the biological activity which takes place there. Examples of contact soil layers include sand bottoms, rock outcrops, coral, and bay mud.

Lug Investigation

The lug as a node for connection was investigated using the same techniques as the earlier bike material studies. Through mirroring and rotating, a new type of lug with distinct inherent qualities emerged. This new typology was then tested for its ability to aggregate within a field condition, as well as its connective ability.

re.ison d’ĂȘtre

Red_iculous is an architectural proposal for a flood plain community on Tonle Sap Lake, Cambodia. after visiting sites in Cambodia, Vietnam, and China, it was abundantly clear that the bicycle played an integral role in modern asian society (not only a mode of transportation, but a material to be harnessed). This, alongside studies in plastic forming, site, water, mechanical connection, cycles, mobility, and deployability begin to converge upon a solution tailored to the people of the flood plain.
