Abstract
This project aims to open a dialogue on the role of the border in todays society. Computational design and emerging 3d fabrication technology will be implemented as a tool to create a border typology modeled after the abundant, productive hedgerows found in nature. Experimentation will delve into the possibilities of digital design and how to manipulate and control algorithmic processes to grow a library of forms and systems which can be deployed to create a spatial experience that encourages cross border collaboration, while simultaneously creating an environment for plant life to thrive. 3d printed clay will be used to animate these forms and its inherent qualities will be exploited to increase the performance of this grown space.

The surface qualities and tactility of the unusual brick forms can act as an attractor, drawing people to this threshold rather than repelling communities as many border interventions do. (Less)
