Mas Moss Living Curtain

Mas Moss is a living curtain, dynamic in performance and evolving in verdant organization. It offers an architectural solution for the introduction of plant material into an interior environment by bringing together exposed-root tillandsia recurvata (commonly known as ballmoss) and a biodegradable, net-like soft structure. The epiphytic bromeliads stimulate haptic biofiltration while reducing VOCs and toxins found in indoor air.

Pikes Powers Living Laboratory

The Pike Powers Living Laboratory exists as part of a clean energy demonstration experiment supported by a grant from the US Department of Energy. Sited within a row of shop houses, the project provides the opportunity to function both as a model sustainable smart home as well as an active lab for sustainable technology experimentation. Both components act as a showplace for technologies and serve as an educational center where researchers, utility providers and the public can see the systems at work and test new approaches in a real world, carefully controlled setting. The building aims to achieve a high degree of holistic sustainability, including low-tech and high-tech strategies.

Portable Retail Store System

Developed before pop-up shops were cool…this Portable Retail System is a fully integrated kit-of-parts that combines the necessary interior fixtures of a retail store with a mobile exterior shell. It is compact, easily transportable, based on modular units, and utilizes lightweight construction principles. The trailer-based system can be quickly deployed and is advantageous for the temporary relocation of a store during construction, as well as for fairs, exhibitions, and other ephemeral events. A variety of material and graphic identity elements allow for factory customization by retailers offering complete environmental branding opportunities.

Deployable Lightweight Medical System

This system is designed to be efficient in its transportation, energy consumption, and cost while offering a sanitary environment that is conducive to medical treatment. Utilizing lightweight construction principles, it is based on a kit-of-parts that forms four basic modules. The node, connection, service, and treatment/ward modules are stored in collapsed condition and can easily be transported by air, land, or water. The modules can be combined into three basic configurations: a basic health care unit, a referral hospital unit, and a surgical hospital unit. Material selection and energy concept of the system warrant its use in extreme climate conditions throughout the world.
