Can a system achieve intelligence by combining the control of a flexible structure with the properties of an active material?
Materfad Director Valerie Bergeron and CITA based exhibitor Phil Ayres will introduce the travelling Smart Flexibility exhibition, conceived to answer this question by Materfad and first shown in the new Design Hub in Barcelona.
There will be a series of short Pecha Kucha style presentations by exhibitors, including of locally selected additional Melbourne exhibits. This is followed by a round table on the potential functionalities of intelligent and flexible architecture.
Harvesting of wind and solar power, electrical and thermal energy generation, perception and adaptation to climatic conditions, to acoustics and lighting environment, user detection and modification of the space through their body, their movements or even their emotions, are the challenges of tomorrow’s spaces and will be open to discussion.
- Convenors: Phil Ayres, CITA and Jane Burry, RMIT
- Pecha Kucha presenters: Select exhibitors
