The rhythmicity project by Monad Studio is a design exploration on rhythmical patterns of growth found in temporal processes of species in Florida. According to the design team observations of the strangler fig trees for instance shows that they grow aerial roots attaching themselves to the host trees depriving it of life in the long run.

The design concerns itself with the expression of a symbiotic system’s ability to augment robustness of an assemblage with its host.

For their design therefore, the team fabricated a smooth and striated monolithic field and then bundled chains of 3d printed components.

The notion of incremental difference is exploited in the design. Right from the minor scale through to the extended field, the patterns are propagated by incremental difference.
