Scissor actuation

Scissor Linkage

Investigations into how dynamic movement might allow for multiple wall configurations and programs. This silly example demonstrates how a scissor mechanism might allow for an increase in growing surface area in areas, like brooklyn, where apartment grow space is typically limited to the window sill. Here plants are suspended from the scissor hinges to remain vertical during actuation and staggered in a running bond pattern to reduce shading of lower levels. Note expansion can happen in 1, 2, and 3 dimensions if desired.
