GreyLess Phytodepuration-Midterm Review


Design Approach

An interactive water diversion system, linking Valldaura’s plants and residents to its grey water.  The interactive system will, via the GreyLess App, allow users to make decisions based on real information of their plants soil humidity levels.  The model will also be used as a screen to project live data on the soil conditions.  Combining experiments, research, and lessons learned from previous prototypes, the GreyLess system is ready to clean grey water and turn it into irrigation water.

Within this architectural context, hygroscopic morphology is defined by the study of forms made from materials that tend to absorb moisture from air. The goal is to produce kinetic energy by nature itself, without any artificial mechanical assistance.The proposal seeked to celebrate the hygroscopic behavior of wood, particularly wood veneer, composed of wood fibre in one direction.

It is for this reason that these are beautiful forms, the most beautiful forms. Everybody is agreed to that, the child, the savage and the metaphysician.-Le Corbusier (Vers une architecture, Towards a new Architecture, 1923) Read More »

When Energy Becomes Form Studio – Mid Term Review

Today the When Energy Becomes Form Studio had their Mid Term Review with Claudia Pasquero, Marco Poletto and Carmelo Zappulla, as well as MAA Director Areti Markopoulou, during which the students presented the research developped until now as well as their bio-technological prototypes, presenting morphology, materiality and aesthetic novelty, through the emergent qualities of specific flows of energy and information.
