Dylan Wood and Tiffany Cheng are computational designers and researchers at the Institute for Computational Design and Construction at the University of Stuttgart. Their research is focused on developing intelligent design and fabrication principles for ‘smart’ shape-changing materials as a form of material robotics that can be applied in building systems, construction, and manufacturing. They are utilizing the 4-dimensional, hygroscopic properties of wood to generate novel designs of reactive material systems, furnitures or large scale architectural building parts.
