sg2013 cluster: (A)Synchronous Streams

sg2013 cluster: (A)Synchronous Streams

15 Members    2 Discussions    2 Wall Posts
(A)Synchronous Streams aims to develop alternative systems for urban site analysis which extend the act of collecting data about a location by utilizing low-cost helium balloons and UAV-based sensor networks operating from the ground level up to several hundred meters into the air.
sg2011 cluster: authored sensing

sg2011 cluster: authored sensing

21 Members    5 Discussions    4 Wall Posts
The Authored Sensing cluster hypothesizes that data-driven design must be supported by designed data. The cluster aims to inject intent and design into the typically passive process of data collection... The cluster promotes the production of designer-authored environmental datastreams: highly contingent, intrinsically idiosyncratic, free for public use that feed directly, intelligently and appropriately into new designs.
sg2011 cluster: responsive acoustic surfacing

sg2011 cluster: responsive acoustic surfacing

18 Members    6 Discussions    0 Wall Posts
This cluster aims to develop and evaluate a new generation of parametric tools that embed emergent behaviour within parametric models. In this cluster we will explore sound datascapes in order to investigate how surfaces with variable resonators can be used to reduce particular frequencies of sound in response to shifts within a particular soundscape.
sg2011 cluster: reflected environments

sg2011 cluster: reflected environments

22 Members    15 Discussions    1 Wall Post
This cluster looks to reveal characteristics of the currents and mechanisms of occupant engagement that would otherwise go unnoticed. The data is the digital fingerprint of the invisible forces at play within the environment, mapping the heat, electricity consumption, noise levels, temperature and air quality, online activity and motion of the workshop participants through the use of pre-wired sensors.
sg2011 cluster: interacting with the city

sg2011 cluster: interacting with the city

19 Members    2 Discussions    2 Wall Posts
This cluster aims to create tangible models of the city ‘in action’, using historical or real-time data. Using Web 2.0 technology, Processing, tangible interactions, projections, and digital modelling and fabrication, physical and digital models will be set up to enable visualisation and tangible interaction with the data.
sg2011 cluster: urban feeds

sg2011 cluster: urban feeds

17 Members    4 Discussions    0 Wall Posts
The cluster will be working at the urban scale focusing on the temporal inhabitation of existing landscapes. Collecting data from urban spaces can help us to gain a qualitative understanding of an existing, functioning space which is evolving continuously over time.

sg2011 cluster: performing skins

27 Members    1 Discussion    8 Wall Posts
This cluster investigates the fabrication of three-dimensional knitted surfaces that provide an intelligent skin, are performative structurally, and are behaviourally responsive.
sg2011 cluster: cyber gardens

sg2011 cluster: cyber gardens

18 Members    3 Discussions    2 Wall Posts
The aim of the cyber-gardens cluster is to experience and test design as a form of cultivation, whereby the designer operates as a cyber-gardener in both choreographing and breeding new artificial ecologies.
