As I have been working through this, I noticed that I have been moving away from the pomegranate and mimicking the durian more.

- Biomimetic strategy: Durian
Thorny durian exterior protects interior flesh and seeds from predators.
Inflatable and pressurized superstructure can houses and protect.

Seeds, safe on the inside as individual units, yet function as a whole to hold in adjacent seeds in place.
Interior of the inflatable superstructure can houses a series of individual
and pressurized volumes.

Like durian skin, a superstructure will serve to protect interior spaces from radiation, the lack of insulation, and provide sound protection through the double skin system.
