Enric Ruiz Geli. Lectures. Reading List. Fibre Composite Adaptive Systems. Designed by Maria Mingallon, Sakthivel Ramaswamy, Konstantinos Karatzas Fibre composite adaptive systems is a research project which emulates self-organisation processes in nature by developing a fibre composite that can sense, actuate and hence efficiently adapt to changing environmental conditions.

Fibre Composite Adaptive Systems

Fibre composites which are anisotropic and heterogeneous offer the possibility for local variations in their material properties. Embedded fibre optics would be used to sense multiple parameters and shape memory alloys integrated in a fibre composite material for actuation. The definition of the geometry, both locally and globally would complement the adaptive functions and hence the system would display ’Integrated Functionality’.

‘Thigmo-morphogenesis’ refers to the changes in shape, structure and material properties of biological organisms that are produced in response to transient changes in environmental conditions. Aggregated Porosity Workshop explores dynamically changing densities from evolo. Held in Changsha, China, and supported by Hunan University’s School of Architecture, the ‘Digital Architecture Laboratory’ (DAL) is designed as an intensive workshop, led by invited design and architecture professionals to expose students to the integration of computationally-driven fabrication techniques.

Aggregated Porosity Workshop explores dynamically changing densities from evolo

The program was organized around the concept of ‘aggregated porosity’, an exploration of dynamically changing density and the lines of intersection between skeletons and solids. The invited tutors for ‘Aggregated porosity’ are Suryansh Chandra of Zaha Hadid Architects and Shuojiong Zhang of UN Studio, who were asked to propose a design scheme aligned with the workshop’s theme and that could provide shade and fit in a volume of 3 x 3 x 6 meters.

Students in the program shared the same brief, and created their own design prototypes at 1:1 scale in addition to assisting in constructing ‘DAL canopy’. LaN. BBC - The Code - The Wisdom of the Crowd. Where Does Your Brilliance Lie? I’m a big fan of seeking wise counsel, and from just about anyone who will give it: friends, paid professionals, parents, postal workers, kind-looking strangers.

Where Does Your Brilliance Lie?

My feeling is that you never know what bit of wisdom someone might have to share. And though it so often feels that no one in the world has ever been in our particular bind or funk, chances are someone has. Someone, somewhere has felt the way we do before. So I wrote to a stranger––two of them actually––who had made creative, good-looking lives for themelves. I peppered them questions, and sent those missives out into the dark recesses of the internet, preparing myself for silence. But both women responded to me––and with kindness and consideration, to boot. And so I listened. Does that question make you feel fired up and inspired, too? Because isn’t that the thing? And so I reflected a bit on my own brilliance (and I will fully admit that modesty is so much in my bones that it’s hard for me to even write that sentence. 43 Things I might want to do this year.
