14). Physical tests were previously effectuated in order to understand the relationship between the geometry of the glass panels and the structural behavior. The test objects were constructed in real scale and were then structurally evaluated. This 56 P. Eversmann et al.

Modular Fibrous Morphologies 43 Fig. 12 Various components assembled Conclusion The presented research successfully integrates both bottom-up explorations, on a biological level as well as on a material and fabrication level, into a coherent and highly integrative design process. The numerous influencing factors were translated through computation into a common geometric language and could thus be simultaneously considered throughout the design process. At the same time each parameter strongly affected the geometric outcome widening or limiting the solution space.
