Material Beyond Materials Panel 3 Performing Environments

Michelle Addington discusses finite element analysis, performance criteria, and smart materials. Mike Lepech discusses advanced composites, life-cycle assessment, reducing solar heat gain, and a performance comparison of panels used in Stanford University’s Bing Concert Hall versus those used at Experimental Media and Performing Arts Center (EMPAC) at Rensselaer Polytechnic. Tom Wiscombe discusses architectural effects created by unifying building systems, as demonstrated in projects such as Thermo-Strut, Lizard Panel Facade, Tracery Glass, Batwing, and the Flower Street BioReactor, which produces bio-fuel by photosynthesis. The panelists discuss the transmutation of matter, good design, material behavior versus material properties, and integrated versus discrete systems.

Introduction by:

Paolo Cascone of COdesignLab talks about using environmental variables as drivers for the design process. He discusses several projects including “Urban Ecologies: towards a performative urbanism,” and two office buildings designed through “performative testing.” He discusses his research on African vernacular construction methods, and how they can inform a new architectural paradigm incorporating high-tech design with low-tech construction methods.
