Based in the material features as flexibility and stability, the group started a research about wood joints, which in turn generated a construct system. Thus, the whole is generated from the unfolding or replication of its minimum modulus (detail), respecting the properties of the material and optimizing its use.
The combination of the clip that facilitates the connections with its layer-by-layer building system ensures that the construction is always stable throughout the entire process. This condition allows non-specialized people using only a rubber hammer be part to the assembly process and it makes the system ideal in an accelerated and organic urban development society.
