In a dynamic process of organization each part of the system has the ability to evolve for maintaining an equilibrium within the whole structure. Our catenary logic controls the proportion of each surface and introduces the intelligence of collective distribution based on dynamic feedback. This allows the units of interactions to create spaces that range from large spans to really compressed spaces that can perform as columns.

The third proposed scenario is regulated throughout the vertical tension that one cell produces over the one which is connected to, a condition that happens when one is situated on top of the other. Moreover, when the first surface is not cast, the new surface is going to pull the first one, by making this space more vertical, at the same time of producing a different quality of semi-enclosed space of circlulation throughout the connection of both.

We also introduce a higher flexibility to the supports, by changing the position of the surfaces when they meet, compressing gradually the space each time a new unit of interaction is reacting with the network of surfaces.

The result of this changes in the rules is the more intense expression of form that is refering to the catenary structure, creating the most intense spatial experience of our system, transforming a field of cells into a field of unexpected transformations of form, revealing the dynamic nature of the system itself.

The complexity of this prototypical formation informs the more the character of the forms related with a prototypical space of highly densed and uniformed formations.
