Mono-modules describes a methodology of designing new volumetric structures with unified elements by an interdisciplinary approach. Goal of the project was to develop reconfigurable and reversible structural systems of volumetrically identical modules to produce an architectural free-form design that works in all dimensions of space without the loss of flexibility. Form is either the logical result of smart positioning algorithms or is defined by certain design conditions. In addition to experimental design methods, natural scientific findings, computer aided mass production and parametrical simulation methods are embedded in the process. Up to now several large scale prototypes of periodic and aperiodic modular systems have been tested and constructed following this strategy
