The Green Spark installation is a research project dedicated to a cutting-edgetechnology, in which plants are used to produce renewable energy.
AR ‘Advanced Moscow Housing Prototype’ for 1000 people was developed by students of the international master program ‘Prototyping Future Cities’ under the guidance of Elena Mitrofanova and Ivan Mitrofanov.
This Hydromatter project focuses on the phenomenon of evaporation under conditions of high humidity and condensation on cool surfaces.
The Smells project is focused on the concept of odours, as well as their impact on the emotional state of a person as potential mood generators.
Crabby is dedicated to the problem of carrying weight and moving around on slippery surfaces.
Flair was developed to bridge the distances between people. It is an outerwear, which sends hugs through a smartphone. The prototype was made with inflatable actuators, which can recreate one’s sense of touch.
Augmentation of communication is attained by coding messages into a series of vibrations. These vibrations are transmitted via a silicone strip on the skin’s surface through the app. Communication can be absolutely different withadded 'tactile' sense!
This project foresees the use of sustainable organic materials to develop networks of urban components. In particular, Interlace 0 investigates the capabilities of natural cotton fibres as a tensile material and bioplastics as binding and compressing materials.
The authors of the project propose to create smart communities, but not smart houses. Rethinking existing smart services, they keep the smart-based content but humanize it.
This project hereby presents a speculative computer vision method for generating urban visual material to projecting future appearances of suburban neighbourhoods of Bishkek.
‘Mycokarst’ is the new generation of urban materials based on karst soil or stone composite and fungal spores that are able to ‘self-repair’ in extreme conditions.
This study explores the potential of generating electricity using repetitive oscillatory movements of tree branches.
This project is based on the idea of integrating natural biological species into the basic urban context using a parametric system of facade modules. A vertical green wall will support the surrounding ecosystem.
