    Materials: Week 10 - Innovation & the Future Materials: Week 10 - Innovation & the Future Presentation Transcript

    • Interior + Environmental Design MATERIALS Innovation & the Future
    • THE FUTURE > PREVIOUS MATERIAL EXPLORATIONS Brick & Stone Concrete Timber Metal
    • THE FUTURE > PREVIOUS MATERIAL EXPLORATIONS Glass & Steel Plastics Colours & Textures Light
    • THE FUTURE > GREEN STRUCTURES > VERTICAL GARDENSA green roof or wall is one that uses sedum matting and low-growing, drought resistant plants.Incorporating a ‘green’ roof or walls in schemes, similar to Patrick Blanc’s Vertical Gardens, providesimpact to the architecture’s aesthetic and will also contribute to a cleaner urban environment. Hotel du Departement, France (left) & Emporium Shopping Mall, Thailand (right) : Patrick Blanc
    • THE FUTURE > NATURAL MATERIALS > DOMESPACEA sustainable approach to construction includes the use of locally sourced, natural materials that canbe easily replenished. This home called Domespace features a 90% wood construction and isinsulated with cork. Its unique system and design allows for the entire structure to rotate. Domespace : Solaleya
    • THE FUTURE > BIOMIMETIC MATERIALS > HABITAT 2020Biomimetic materials are developed for use in buildings, but mimic aspects of organic or plant life.Habitat 2020 is a futuristic example of biomimetic architecture that fuses high-tech ideas with basiccellular functions to create ‘living’ structures that operate like natural organisms. Habitat 2020 : Philips Design
    • THE FUTURE > LIVING STRUCTURES > BOTANY BUILDINGLiving structures can offer both an innovative and sustainable future building option. Germanarchitects are bending trees to form a new breed of living architecture. Their Botany Buildingstructure has the ability to ‘live’ and grow over time. Botany Building : Oliver Storz, Ferdinand Ludwig, Hannes schwertfeger
    • THE FUTURE > PREFABRICATED HOMES > ‘HOME DELIVERY’Combining architecture and technology, this home showcased at a the Home Delivery exhibitionwas computer-designed and its pieces milled to the exact dimensions using laser cutting to ttogether like a 3-D puzzle. The whole process is designed in such a way in order to minimise waste. Home Delivery Exhibition : System Architects & Gauthier Architects
    • THE FUTURE > ORIENTATION > WIND SHAPED PAVILIONConsidered architectural designs use aspects of site orientation to capitalise on natural lighting,solar and wind power and passive heat gain. The fabric structure of the Wind Pavilion changes itsshape randomly with the wind, and generates electricity to illuminate the premises at night time. Wind Shaped Pavilion : Michael Jantzen
    • THE FUTURE > NANO MATERIALS > NANO VENT-SKINNano materials are man-made and exist at a microscopic scale and are engineered to change inresponse to certain situations. Nano Vent-Skin is a conceptual project that tries to make existingobjects greener with a skin made out of micro turbines, which generate energy from wind. Nano Vent-Skin : Agustin Otegu
    • THE FUTURE > SHAPE-MEMORY MATERIALS > ‘MEMORY’ CHAIRShape-memory materials can change shape and then re-con gure back to their original form.‘Memory’ chair is covered in a dome of recycled aluminium, which retains the shape it’s squashedinto. It completes its design by transforming its silhouette which occurs when the user sits in it. ‘Memory’ Chair : Tokujin Yoshioka
    • THE FUTURE > MICROARCHITECTURE > TREE HOTELDesigns for ‘micro’ spaces that can be used for living, working or studying in over-crowded cities offeran innovative, inexpensive and effective use of materials and techniques. One microarchitectureexample is this Tree Hotel in Sweden, which takes the form of a 4x4x4 suspended mirrored glass box. Tree Hotel, Sweden : Tham & Videgård Arkitekter
    • THE FUTURE > LIGHT-EMITTING MATERIALS > LED WALLPAPERWhen stimulated electronically these materials can emit different coloured lights. This LED wallpaperwill enable us to use two-dimensional light sources instead of the 3D lighting xtures currently inuse all around the world. The LEDs consume very little power and are relatively cheap. Light-Emitting Wallpaper : Jonas Samson
    • LIGHT > ADAPTABLE ENVIRONMENTS > ‘THE SURGERY’ OFFICEThe future will see the creation of buildings and spaces that can adapt to the various needs of theirusers. Spaces that can be used exibly, either by moving walls or altering the spatial con guration,offer an innovative approach. ‘The Surgery’ office is one such exible space. ‘The Surgery’ Office, London : Post-Office
    • THE FUTURE > TOUCH-SENSITIVE TECHNOLOGY > TOUCH LAMP VASETouch-sensitive technology can be used in architectural design to allow interactivity between theuser and their environment .The Touch Lamp Vase is operated by touching the owers in the vase.The high content of water on the owers makes them conductive and sensitive when touched.  Touch Lamp Vase : Roger Arquer
    • THE FUTURE > REMOTE CONTROL > MORPHEUS CHANDELIERBuildings of the near future could be controlled via mobile phone technology, allowing devices suchas heating systems to be switched on and off remotely. And here the Morpheus chandelier is shapedby the viewers’ imagination: from a circle, to a square, to an in nity sign – all via remote-control. Morpheus Chandelier : Yves Behar
    • THE FUTURE > MATERIAL ADVANCES > TRANSLUCENT CONCRETEAdvances in material science can produce new and innovative possibilities. Litracon is a buildingmaterial that is composed of ne concrete and optical glass bres. Thousands of bres run side byside transmitting light between the two surfaces, making the concrete seem translucent. Pantheon, Rome, Italy, AD 125 : Unknown Architect
    • THE FUTURE > EMOTIONAL RESPONSE MATERIALS > FUNKTIONIDE  We may see more materials and concepts evolving that may be able to cater to our emotional needs.A German designer has designed a conceptual shape-changing object called Funktionide, to relieveloneliness, using arti cial muscle technology which allows it to gently change shape as if breathing. Funktionide : Stefan Ulrich
    • THE FUTURE > SMART MATERIALS > DIGITAL DAWNThe properties of smart materials alter in response to changes in external stimuli. For example, theymay alter their shape or colour in response to changes in temperature or exposure to light. DigitalDawn is a light reactive window blind which has been inspired by photosynthesis. Digital Dawn : Loop.pH Design Research Studio
    • THE FUTURE > INTERIOR OF THE FUTURE?Karim Rashid s Smart-ologic Living space challenges the ideas of what a sustainable futuristic interiormight look like. The Corian has been made using sourced components and recycled materials, andspecial panels reduce energy consumption. The modular pieces allow the home to be assembled veryquickly, with very little waste of material. Smart-ologic Corian Living : Karim Rashid
