In 1970, Verner Panton, a dane industrial designer (1926-1998), showed his “FANTASY LANDSCAPE ROOM” for an exhibition INTERIOR/EXTERIOR.
With coloured foam rubbers, he built geometry sections used only body shapes.
Each one of them is one activity, so in this design, the architecture is understood like a catalog of human positions (sitting down, liying, standing up…)
But in this, you can find a new concept, geometry in movement. You can choose your activity looping around these geometries.
Each section contains various activity´s geometries, so the number of sections define the posibilities of program to do in this house.
For that, the architecture is the movement of body sections.
In this case, the movement of geometrical sections is defined by weather conditions, because of that, the geometry of these rings are the same. They don´t be lived, don´t give activity, only are an interface to capture Rain and Sun and protect from wind.
So Rain+Sun+Wind are regulanting parameters to get a perfect indoors atmosphere rotating manually or automatically these architectonic rings.
Now, it doesn´t talk about body geometry as architectural sections. There aren´t static sections but an interactive topography of activity.
We can choose a different program in the same space because of the shape of space is flexible.
So here, architecture is the movement of a distorted surface by its users, therefore in this concept there aren´t rooms or containers with one activity, there are variable environments make up with new materials: POLI URETHAN (good flexibility and resistance).
SMP react to high temperatures changing their shapes because with that“activation temperature” transform to elastic condition allowing deformations about 200% and can stretch up to 800% their original size. If it is colded with this deformation, it transforms to rigid condition and keep these deformations. Going back to heat up it, this recover its “equilibrium condition” loosing previous deformations.
(*) its COVERING: hundreds of (green) legs that can lengthen, shorten and change their orientation for adapting oneselves to the user´s shapes without any mechanical system. Only is needed that F Bitonti tells us what material is this!!!
(*) its ALUMINIUM RODs: hundreds of legs that can lengthen, shorten and change their orientation for reforce shapes got by electroactive shape memory polymer´s changes without any mechanical system. Only is needed that F Bitonti tells us how this is possible!!!
Do you remember this toy?
I found this “legs´ concept” in it because it could reproduce my body shapes with maximun precision because it could change/adapt the height of their metallic “legs” when i closed it to me.
a display system where the screen surface physically moves through an hydraulic system formed by triangular panels that making changes of depth, lighting and shades when its touched or programmed by user.
So that, this interactive surface is able to react with user´s touch, to reproduce any shape like letters and thus making logos and texts, to change color, to reproduce sounds like songs. Every thing you want, you can make it through an user interface that allows you to control them like an "interactive DJ".
So, this surface has three types of working or control: programmed mode // interactive mode // live (free) mode.
(*)weight: 6531 Kg
So, this app allows you to select: your virtual furniture // how many users will have // where you want them and send it to control system of Hyposurface for reading this data or spatial coordinates like a logo or text to reproduce.
And Hyposurface, is not just a surface, now is an architectural covering that allows to select “the beginning” (CHOOSE: START) and the end (CHOOSE: STOP) of your furnishing process: why each room of our homes has to be with furniture even when we are not using them?
So that, nowadays architecture´s brick is software.
Because of that, ikea wouldn´t send furnitures to put together but softwares of furniture´s data to be connected to an smart coverings and each certain time you can buy your updates of furniture´s data!!!
We wouldn´t pay money for furnitures but for license of their spatial coordenates…the Jacobsen chair, the Gerrit Rietveld´s red blue chair, the Panton chair, the Philippe Stark´s Louis Ghost chair, the Le Corbusier´s Chaise Longue chair… also you can hack into!!!
