suckerPUNCH: describe your project.
li DAODE: Its a research based design proposal, we met in AA Design Research Laboratory in 2004, Since beginning we were interested in bady oriented architecture, a deployable fully integrated into body architecture that deploys anywhere and anytime…
DE_PLO developed as a contemporary response to global disaster cenario relief. The World Health Organization indicates natural disasters and other unpredictable events are so common today that we must urgently devise responses before they can occur. Architects are asked to invent new kinds of highly adaptable and rapidly deployed spaces for different emergencies.
Our proposal engages the necessity to design flexible and adaptable systems that are able to negotiate the uncertainty of disaster relief. Through an in-depth analysis of post catastrophic scenario based case studies we identified patterns that assisted in developing a range of organization logics that could be implemented on site. Through the development of simple pattern cutting and clipping systems we transformed flat sheet material in complex three-dimensional spatial structures. The results are an original piece of research that poses an alternative model to existing methods of response through a carefully studied and crafted proposal.
