Questions

How much does the bag affect the plants health?
Will the sealed transpiration process cause dehydration in the plant?
Do certain plants leave a heavier concentration of minerals to gather at the bottom?
How long does it take for the plant to transpire all the water from the bag?

3D Print

3 prints were done total. First one was a test print without cannons with the next two have the cannons on. I made the supports to small for the printer and the cannons failed on both prints. The black print was from the CubeX, which came out solid overall but not enough support in the bottom. The blue was done of the Robo to see if the results were different. For some reason the Robo did no print the front right section of the model, otherwise the results were largely the same.



Project 1 Update

The building has been redesigned to be more cylindrical but still keep its triangular form from the top. In the second image the windows have been made to resemble more of the designs of the buildings in Masdar City. The final image is the planned layout of the entire building. Each tower increases successively by 50% with the points of the buildings congregating towards the center.

Project 1 Proposal

For my proposal the location I chose was Masdar City, United Arab Emirates. The buildings main purpose would be to  house large events, provide occomadations for visitors, and an overall gathering place. It is to be a cylindrical tower with three pillars that travel from top to bottom and linked together by a spiraling tube. There will be a series of three towers with increasing heights and a congregating field in between them all.
