Architecture through historical evidence seeks to find a straightforward development strategy for designing a place around Phenomenological views. Humans are one moment in time and space, seeking interactions between our senses and our environment. We are able to shape our reality over time, utilizing the characteristics given to us by history and nature. The Geometric Discipline assessed, explores how natural forces seen as vectors are applied in Different rational and irrational numbers. Natural structures and forms are looked at in a sensible fashion to give logic to our environment for design. The divide of design analysis for the hexagon form in different variables, looks at parametric design and where rules stem from. Mimics of Nature, systems for Nature and Mans representation of Nature will probe the ideas supplied by our surroundings. The Hexagon is seen as an Ideal form for Nature and Man to use to design some of the most beautiful structure seen from the Sagrada Familia to the Redwood forest. The ability for us to design is based around rules and regulations that allow us to design vectors into structures. With modern technology the Coordinate system used by nature can be replicated to create elaborate structures and systems very simply Designed. Fabrication will follow Natural Form and Ideal Form to design a structure built from the Hexagons variables. Looking at the Hexagon as a sixth strand of design, an enclosure will be produced that investigates Nature, Ideal Forms, Space, Human Interaction and the underlining strategies from the hexagon. Application of the Structure will appeal to how the hexagon is made in nature and how simple vectors create forms. The mix media of biological structure and architectural language will develop a new interaction to stand as an example of a natural structure reacting to its origin.
