BlobHouse – has A new structural design for the facade. The work on the main prototype has discovered new ways in making the home a more efficient in terms of footprint and materials usage. Now, the whole house is modular and is being built using a set of components which connect each other and create the whole build.
The house can be used stand alone with no facade which creates straight edges and give a tech look, while using the facade mesh, it creates a more dynamic shape.
Back in 2009 when we started this research, we looked in depth at cellular expansions through space and we’ve found that they have an amazing ability to transfer information from one to the other. Now, you might think that the information is transferred the way space is transferred and that the fabric of space holds the sequences of these expansions and therefore, a valid point to suggest that the space is in fact the memory. We know how to create it, but we don’t know how it has been created. The questions through which we hope to unfold a fabric of space.
What is AIS?
AIS is a basic experimental model which acts as a post and beam structure from point 0 to almost infinite. Being able to calculate its own weight, the structure is defining new points of expansion through clusters that quantify three models from our living environment. These clusters are work, live and green.
The structure is also flexible, while its joints are fixed, the post and beam system works perfectly to accommodate movement, while the holes which are left in the expansion connect with other structural supports that takes the place of the bones. AIS is no more than a fabric, which is flexible and can be adapted to cover the ‘bone’s and act as a skin, but also a structure.
Where can be applied?
AIS has been tested in virtual environments and worked for the formation of cities and as mentioned above, robots. This can be adapted and other applications in research because it softness the articulations and a new line in portability can be set.
AIS works very well for property developers and it cuts cost down and also can be 3D printed. The supply chain, the manufacture process and the execution is above any other system.
