An ongoing post-occupancy evaluation for the building, the neighbourhood and the city.* A software service layer for connecting things together within and across buildings.* As information increasingly becomes thought of a material within building, it makes sense to consider it holistically as part of the built fabric, as glass, steel, ETFE etc.
Within the living room the ceiling wraps down to an internal water tank. The tank cools the ambient air temperature of the living room during summer, supplies rain water, and structurally carries the roof load. Excess water drains to an external tank, and is used for flushing toilets, irrigating the garden, washing wetsuits and occasionally for drinking. During winter the tank is drained and wrapped in an insulating jacket.
