DS18_2015/16: Architecture, Energy, Matter 3, Briefs 1 + 2: On the Edge of Entropy

Lindsay Bremner + Roberto Bottazzi

To begin our studio on the Maldives, students were asked to employ computations tools to simulate material behaviours and to develop spatial and temporal sensibilities and intuitions towards dynamic material systems.
