Inspiration started with the microanalyses of raspberries and how the paricular berries  stick together.The idea was to think up a system of volumetric elements, created by various components, to populate a shelter-like structure. By playing with materials, pen, paper and 3D, was developed an component based on four arched Möbius strips out of biocomposite flexible board. It gave some stability, but only after adding 3D veneer from both sides of flexible board, the component got stiff and ready for further structural development.  Those componentes are modular and can be populated to almost any shape with optimal structural design
