The Mobius strip and parametric modularity define our morphological framework for our physical form exploration. The Mobius Strip, a one-sided non-orientable surface, can be mathematically represented by parameters based on the topological definition as the rotation of a line segment around a circle. The principle of modularity is based on repetition, adjacencies and relations of modules to each other made possible by using Grasshopper for Rhino. The detailing of connection points and components are crucial for a successful module based design process and solution.
