Allotropic Systems: Thermo-sensitive reconfigurable molds
Allotropy in the natural world occurs with variation within the arrangement of the atoms within a specific element. The differing structural arrangements make up different materials, such as the element carbon that produces ...
In and Out of Control: An exercise in the design of low-tech/high effect responsive building facades
In + Out of Control is a design focused investigation into the development of an architectural façade that provides an experiential architecture for the occupant through the control of light and view. This body of work ...
Out of Plane: Utilizing Auxetic Origami Systems to Optimize Synclastic Curvature
Auxetic geometry, which can be defined as geometry which expands in a direction perpendicular to a tensile force and contracts in a direction perpendicular to a compressive force, has found application at multiple scales ...
Human architecture interface
This thesis focuses on the design of interfaces that allow architectural spaces to become responsive to the thermal aspects of human physiology. It will explore ways in which a person's temperature can be non-invasively ...
