A new perspective at tackling sustainable design is to prototype structures that can perform robotically without external energy inputs or programmed electrical mechanisms. By harvesting the potential of naturally responsive materials, and accentuating their original morphologic qualities, ecologically embedded architectural structures can be designed in accord with specific climatic conditions.

This modular structure mimics the microscopic structure of butterfly wings. Each module is designed to expand and collapse as it senses different levels of sunlight. The movement was designed in Grasshopper and tested on a physical model using the Arduino plugin for Rhino, Firefly, A nylon print of the module was made to capture the expanded form.
