Passive House Vernacular Architecture Tropical Climate Modular Architecture, Off The Grid & Energy Analysis The Passive House [Taiwan] is a modern take on climate specific housing which draws on vernacular techniques from Taiwan.

Passive House - Myriad Harbor

The house promotes Summer cooling through natural ventilation and sun-shading. Winter warming is achieved by solar gains and thermal mass. The house is constructed from prefabricated components, all of which, aside from the concrete foundation, are easily assembled by a duo of “non-specialized laborers.” Solar panels, radiant floors, and LED lights are just some of the high tech solutions for “sustainable living” that have captured the imagination of the green consumer.

ELISA STROZYK. "Wooden Textiles" convey a new tactile experience.


We are used to experience wood as a hard material; we know the feeling of walking across wooden floors, to touch a wooden tabletop or to feel the bark of a tree. Clubik. This project presents results of my recent researches in domain of generative constructions, that are ‘bred’ with use of artificial intelligence.


Structures shown here have been created by programs acting as ‘virtual playground’, in which all real world properties have been recreated (gravity and other external world circumstances influencing general shape of the construction). It mainly relates to ‘phototropic’ growth, which develops object in direction of light source and opposite to this of gravitational force. Additionally few other rules have been implemented, for example constructions automatically entwine already existing elements of virtual world (boxes), and constantly optimize themselves ; in cases where material and connections are placed disproportionally, nodes are moved to where more material is needed to transfer forces. Nodes keep nearly equal distances between, which makes construction consist of quite proportional tetrahedrons.

HAUGEN/ZOHAR. How can digital technology and waste be combined to create spaces of quality?


Cave for kids by Haugen/Zohar Arkitekterat. 50 m3 and 1,5 tonnes of pre-industrial waste make a secret, spooky space, a playful cave for children. Uruguayan writer Eduardo Galliano argues, ´Show me how you play and I will show who you are`. The games we play and don’t play, how we play them and with whom, have become a central aspect of the modern world’s popular cultures and their understanding of themselves. Norwegian Wild Reindeer Centre Pavilion by Snøhetta. The rippled timber core of this reindeer observation pavilion by architects Snøhetta mirrors the curves of the surrounding Dovre Mountains in Norway.

Autolux Large Scale Retail Presented at AIA 10x10 competion Los Angeles, CA Autolux is a new concept in car sales and car display.

Autolux - Myriad Harbor

The term “auto-mall” is interpreted literally and presents an ongoing interactive car show that is meant to entertain and gratify the American interest in the automobile. The experience of Autolux divorces interaction from purchase. The cars are presented as consumer objects in the familiar hero poses of car advertising. The ground plane is a panelized landscape creating sales space within the synthetic mounds and elevated platforms for car display on the surface. The test track that threads through the building is for both test driving new cars and cars currently owned by the patrons. Tesselion : Adaptive Quadrilateral Flat Panelization. Markus Wikar.

At cross-purposes As multipurpose as a Swiss army knife, shunted back and forth every which way between art and architecture, he is at once an alibi, a foil, a spiritual father, a defeated ideologue whose scars are an atonement (the deafness, whether real or feigned – we’ll come back to it later) and rather handy… a paper architect, an ideologue, the kind of brand that keeps on giving, still legitimized by the French establishment, that funny alter cocker Yona Friedman® with the slight Slavic accent that makes you smile, whose foibles everyone forgives, since they’re so charming and “inoffensive.”
