There is a more dynamic opportunity for architecture to be more personalized for occupant need — and that means the merger of augmented reality with architecture.
Such augmented reality advances seem to be a grand unifier — in that they unify information by removing boundaries of place, material, or time. By being able to configure a room visually, by standing within its space, and see the cost on the fly is quite amazing.
As a designer you are probably always thinking about new and exciting ways to integrate nature into your design. Yes, nature needs to harmonize with your design aesthetically and functionally — but what if it could also interact with your design — virtually?
“Invoked computing” is a term being used to describe how everyday objects can gain mega-functionality by having computer functions applied to them. These developments predict a world where there are no location-specific computers like we have today, but where everyday objects can be used as computers — even a banana, as you will see in the following video demonstration.
How often do you capture a "creative spark"? The key when modeling a creative spark is to create an MVM, a Minimum Viable Model, that quickly tests your creative spark. This initial physical model is a quick handmade prototype to help yield proof of concept: built to see if this creative spark has depth for further development.
The above close-up section of a recent environmental drawing I created explores what I call the structure of gravity. This paradoxical term speaks to the bridging of architecture between the earth and sky – as built form rises upward as if to collaborate with the science of gravity through the structure of design expression.
Developing the ability to evolve your design process is critical not only to your architectural brand, but also to the clients and building occupants your design projects serve. By formulating design concepts that push boundaries, you eliminate getting stuck or plateauing as you improve your design thinking and design doing from project to project.
