adaptive [skins] : Smart Materials and Dynamic Systems in Architecture


The project adaptive [skins] questions the static nature of architectural spaces, and engenders dynamism and motion in architecture in a complex and dynamic environment. an investigation exploring design of building skin systems that adapt to the dynamic environmental conditions to regulate the internal conditions in a habitable space, over different periods of time. Smart systems that integrate smart materials and smart geometries are developed that can be self-actuated to adjust to the seasonal changes leading to phenomenal conditioning, energy efficiency and creating dynamic spatial effects, for the interior as well as exterior.

Levitating Wirelessly Powered Sound Circuits


Fine artist Alexander Leonhart talks about his exploration and first creations as he delved into interactive media in graduate school. In search of the strange and wonderful, he transitioned from whimsical constructed photography works to bringing tangible experiences with uncanny electrical operations to his pieces. Meandering the new media world, and after many failed attempts, he created unique levitating wirelessly powered circuits and paper synthesizers sculptures.n
