A Daily Dose of Architecture Exploration Architecture philosophy - Exploration Architecture Innovating and collaborating to address the major challenges of our age We use biomimicry to develop new strategies, to radically rethink existing building types and devise a completely new approach to the design process. Biomimicry is a rapidly emerging discipline that learns from the remarkable catalogue of solutions to be found in biology – all of which have been refined by 3.8 billion years of evolution. Whereas sustainable development has often been based on mitigating negatives, biomimicry represents a new paradigm and reveals solutions that go beyond ‘sustainable’ to be restorative and deliver net positive impacts. We have successfully worked with a wide range of organisations to help them succeed in the shift that is already underway - from the industrial age to the ecological age of humankind. Frequently our projects achieve substantial resource savings and reveal major commercial opportunities for our clients. What others say about us: Dayna Baumeister Biomimicry3.8

It enhances the existing environment rather than replacing it as in the case of virtual reality. AR in Manufacturing The application of AR technologies to simulate and improve these manufacturing processes before they are carried out is an innovative and effective approach. Research on the manufacturing applications of AR is a strong and growing area. AR in Assistive Technology & Rehabilitation Engineering Due to the increasing population of elderly people worldwide, there is a growing proportion of individuals who suffer from hand impairments due to illnesses related to ageing or other forms of injury. Technology for Licensing: WinAR Ver 1 and Ver 2 WinAR is a Windows-based development platform (MFC) for AR applications. Video of Researches in NUS-ARAT Lab! This video shows AR in Assistive Technology in the lab (Jun 2013). ARATLab Youtube Channel

Dezeen architecture and design magazine Creative Design in Industry and Architecture Authors: G. Berkin and O. Kucukerman, Halic University Faculty of Architecture, Turkey Covering the topics of architecture and industrial design Creative Design in Industry and Architecture argues that the discourse on design criteria for both professions share many similarities. It is not intended to be prescriptive, but is rather the outcome of a detailed design analysis of the works of a number of industrial and architectural designers. With decades of academic experience, the authors are keen on the idea that creativity can be taught. Common theories and practices are exposed within the two disciplines through observation, analysis, experiment and reflection to discuss and gain insight.
