Proposal for Parametric Hanging Structure

The proposed hanging structure directs the view of passersby. With openings and tunnels that change shapes and sizes, it can also generate a multitude of visual transparency.

In the grasshopper file, the initial hexagonal cells were generated with lunchbox, and I also experimented with two forces in kangaroo physics in order to manipulate the  geometry of openings.
