Here is a ghosted perspective of the reconfigurable interior surfaces David Boira and I presented during our final review.
David Boira and I have worked out these prototypes for reconfigurable housing modules. Following a flexible grid, these units can plug into a larger housing block and still retain their individuality by taking on different spatial and environmental configurations. On the interior, this performance is enhanced by floors and walls which can similarly be customized or rearranged for different uses.
David Boira and I are working on translating our ideas from our reconfigurable furniture into a more specific architectural space by producing a wall and / or floor panel system. These surfaces are designed to produce varying degrees of folding with real time articulation assist. When panels are pushed or pulled, an electric actuator exerts force in the direction of the pull, making the hinged surface fold with no effort into shelves, tables, chairs, or whatever other arrangement one desires.
