While the embodied carbon benefits of mass timber are well studied, numerous claims regarding mass timber as thermal mass lack substantive evidence. This work examines to what extent mass timber is thermally massive compared to wood stud and concrete constructions, and how this behavior...
This study outlines the development of clay and ceramic-based living biocomposite materials under minimal moisture environments. The biocomposites supported live and metabolically active photosynthetic microorganisms (microalgae). The work sets out laboratory testing strategies to assess the...
This paper introduces a method of post-tensioning granular jammed structures to achieve horizontal spans that can be tuned and morphed, as well as withstand significant vertical loads. The paper begins by discussing recent research into jammed structures. The methods section details the...
Current examples of passively actuated structures and surfaces show enormous potential in conferring buildings and products with the ability to assume multiple spatial configurations without added electrical power. This research focuses on leveraging the water‐responsive material properties of...
Terra-Cotta Grotto prototype tests the bioclimatic conditioning and experiential qualities of a porous mass by digitally carving out walls from a stack of terra-cotta rain screen panels. The project explores engagement with ambient flows and ecological context through a heavy yet porous material...
