Applied Research in Embedded Kinetics Material Systems and Control for Active Architecture Since the end of the XIXth century, architects' spatial desires of flexibility, adaptability, modulation, variation and ...
A Degree of Freedom
We propose an architecture of transition. A series of transitions between forces, (material) phases, people, spaces, and functions. Form does not always follow the functions that we cannot predict but rather the phases ...
Moss FM is a radio powered by plants. The technology behind it are photo microbial fuel cells, which harness and convert electrons produced by plants during photosynthesis. The moss tufts are essentially used as biological ...
Resinance 2.0 is the successor of Resinance, realized six month after the first project. Its general system is building upon the initial installation with improved behavioural complexity and technical and material ...
Resinance is part of an ongoing series, exploring the potential use of smart materials in an architectural context. It was realized in March 2013 by the Master of Advanced Studies class at the Chair for CAAD. ...
The Microbial Home Probe project consists of a domestic ecosystem that challenges conventional design solutions to energy, cleaning, food preservation, lighting and human waste. Our world is sending us ...
Phototropia is part of an ongoing series on the application of smart materials in an architectural context and was realized in April 2012 by the Master of Advanced Studies class at the Chair for CAAD, supervised by Manuel ...
ShapeShift proposes a new possibility of architectural materialization and ‘organic’ kinetics. It explores the potential application of electroactive polymers (EAP) at an architectural scale. EAPs are ...
The Actuated Matter Workshop explored the application of smart materials in architecture with respect to their ability to transform architecture into an “Emotive Environment”, a space that relates to its inhabitants in ...
