The paper presents an ongoing research that examines the potential of creating and implementing infinite spatial tiling systems without external joints. It defines types of possible natural nets that have a potential of tiling, and inherent joining variations. In addition, it presents and discusses a case study in which an infinite spatial tile system was developed, and found its implementation as a Green Partition. Finally, it examines the potential and advantages of such systems.
