Magpie house project, the ecology-inspired project, is an objet that tries to interpret robustness and comfort of a magpie’s nest in the nature from the integrated perspective of design and engineering.This project copied the nest’s design pattern of interference fit which is excellent for ventilation and insulation, and the engineering structure that can endure external pressure and strong wind, turning them into a frame. The created frame is copied again through 3D printing into any space around the world, which turns the space into a new one with surrounding materials.
