          • A Kinetic Sculpture: Tactus

            IAT 337 Final Project - A Kinetic Sculpture Tactus is a kinetic sculpture with breathing mechanisms to represent the liveliness of the natural world through thriving 'creatures'. Each of these 'creatures' are a visual metaphor for energy consumption within a designated space. It aims to inform the user while promoting an ongoing conversation on sustainability as a means to counter the overconsumption of resources. We see Tactus as an opportunity to give the natural world a voice, in which the green sections of each piece expands as less energy is consumed, and contracts when more is. Each interactive 'creature' could potentially be a representation of different spaces, informing about each space through a visual abstraction of what could be pie charts. As the green sections demonstrate a metaphor of the well-being of the natural world, decisions concerning energy consumption become both a visual and physical entity. We hope that users strive to be rewarded with the liveliness of the green hue, parallel to striving for a more green earth. Tactus embodies our intentions of making the impacts of our decisions immediately evident to us, rather than a far away reality, in which we may adjust our individual lifestyle and spending patterns to immerse ourselves in a dialogue with nature.

                The Andersonville Parklet is unveiled. We have added a robust .006 acres to Chicago’s park system. More info here http://moss-design.com/2012/08/28/chicagos-first-parklet-in-andersonville/ Expanding on our one-day PARK(ing) Day installations, moss and Studio Murmur co-designed Chicago’s first parklet / people spot, a small urban park, that will transform former parking spaces into a semi-permanent, seasonal urban oasis. The parklet, which will be built in two parking spaces at Clark Street and Farragut Avenue, will serve as a green retreat in the dense commercial district of Andersonville. Parklet amenities will include an herb garden, native Illinois plants, built-in benches, bike parking, and a planted hill for lounging. The parklet was nominated for the Ford Community Green Grant in May 2012. Parklet was fabricated by http://www.demetermillwork.com

                  In this lecture at Arizona State University's Phoenix Urban Research Laboratory, Andrés Duany challenges us to look at the future of American cities in a new light. How do the current crises of global recession and climate change affect how we design and build cities? Sprawl is the least sustainable growth pattern, yet it still represents a major portion of the built environment – how will we adapt, repair, and rebuild it? Duany proposes new ideas and innovative strategies for rebuilding sustainable communities in the 21st century.

                    Patrick Bellew - Director, Atelier Ten Patrick Bellew's presentation homes in on the need to maximise the value of available resources. With 10% of energy needing to come from renewable sources, a big step forward is to minimise the energy use of buildings in the first place, as achieving 10% of a little is easier than 10% of a lot. Mr Bellew also underlines the need for heat recovery systems, adding solar heating and using on-site tree planting to try and achieve carbon neutral or carbon positive buildings. Mr Bellew's speech reiterates the need to draw inspiration from the natural world in order to engineer sustainable solutions. Mr Bellew uses the example of a termites nest, where the centre needed to be maintained at 31 degrees – something accomplished through natural ventilation and natural heating. He draws comparisons between this and the Villa Costozza in Italy which uses decoupled thermal mass to achieve a similar effect. Another example of sustainable design the Patrick points towards is the Kimberlin Library at De Montfort university, where the heat from computers and visitors to the library was found to be enough to heat the building using a slab system and heat recovery ventilation. At the Earth Centre in Doncaster, architects built the underground of the site as two slabs with a labyrinth in between. Using this labyrinth in harmony with a heat displacement system, it draws night air down to cool the building in the summer and will circulate warm air trapped by glass to provide heat in the winter. The presentation ends with a quote from Paul Finch, warning against the overuse of the word ‘sustainable’ where it does not necessarily apply: “Over-use of words like ‘Sustainability’ reduces them to the lowest level of meaning, that is to say the level where politicians and marketing directors feel comfortable using them, safe in the knowledge that they can mean anything. “The arrogant descriptions of buildings, places and their architecture, as being ‘sustainable’ generally flies in the face of history.” For more information, see: http://www.nightingaleassociates.com/sc07-syn-4.html The presentation content and the opinions expressed their in, are offered only as guidance and neither the speaker nor Nightingale Associates accept responsibility for how they are used or interpreted.
