鈥 The use of materials that change their properties will revolutionise architecture. Buildings of the future will be able to adjust colour, size, shape and opacity. Architects will be able to design buildings that change their geometry according to the people inside. Those who fail to run with the trend, sparked by radical smart materials towards adaptive and kinetic buildings,... Read More

M6: PROTOTYPES: DEVELOPING CONCEPTS

This short video is a compilation of the prototypes we produced in one week towards the final project, an installation that focus on the application of thin film electroluminescent foils combined with data gained through a multitude of Kinect Cameras. This project is developed by the 2010-2011 CAAD MAS class.聽The goal is to create and immersive environment as a combination of behavior,... Read More

M6: EXPERIMENT: DIY EL SCREEN

This first experiment aimed to understand how do an Electroluminescent display works. Electroluminescence is a direct conversion of electric energy to light, and it happens when a solid phosphor is subjected to an strong alternating electric field, typically 90VAC @ 500Hz.  This is how it works: – The copper precipitates to form nanocrystals of copper sulfide. These... Read More
