Edible Infrastructure- Darrick Borowski, Jeroen Janssen, Nikoletta Poulimeni

Check out this project from a few students at The AA.  Done as part of an emergent technologies class, the few students created a new neighborhood, computational derived from the need for space and sustainability.  Although we would have liked to see some of the more important buildings have a more thorough design, the importance is in the larger scale of the urban fabric that is created.

An Acoustic Lyrical Mechanism – Basmah Kaki

Today’s project is this year’s RIBA Bronze Medal winner.  Designed by Basmah Kaki, the acousitc lyrical mechanism aims to save quarry workers from noise pollution.  Although it sounds pretty fancy and involved, the project uses basic design moves to create a space away from the constant noise.  It’s a great project, but we’d love to see if there could be a way to create a space that actively works with sound energy, to reduce echos, reverberations and escaping noise.  Check it out.
