Adaptive Systems: Spring IDR studio work on display April 25-29

OPEN HOUSE April 25 – 29
Opening April 25 at 4:00 – 5:30 pm in Carpenter 201

The spring 2016 IDR Adaptive Systems studio, led by faculty members Mona Ghandi and Saleh Kalantari, has focused on kinetic and responsive design solutions and tends to create tools, techniques, and platforms for robotized self-adjusting buildings. The studio has aimed at a more comprehensive design of adaptive systems in architecture and interior design.

The framework for designing adaptive systems in this studio has incorporated computational methods in both design thinking and fabrication process as well as studying material behavior, transformative mechanism, and robotics. Emphasizing the connection of data to the adaptive built environment, this studio has focused on design computation, BIM management, human factor analysis, sustainable factors, fabrication, lighting design, and detailing.

Students from architecture and interior design have collaborated to create design solutions for adaptive and responsive systems in the design of a Washington State University Visitor Center in Spokane, WA.
