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, … » More …
