ARCHITECTURE – Future Systems
At studioJLA, we feel our architecture is an evolving process between design and technology. With advancement in sustainable technologies and being more affordable, their is an opportunity for the built environment to be more efficient in adapting to changes to its environment.
These technologies provide a dwelling with the ability to react to immediate changes in their environment while just a passive design approach generally is a response to seasonal changes and solar access.
For instance the typical home generally relies on mechanical air conditioning to heat and cool to bring a home to a constant thermal comfort level. Which the amount of air cooling or heating is determined by design and its existing thermal conditions.
However new technologies such as smart ceiling fans that reacting to the temperature of a space and adjust their fan speed to moderate the temperature of a room. The monitoring and small input of ventilation reduces the need for large input to cool and heat a space. Such large mechanical systems also require labour and resources to fabricate all the components. So each system needs to consider the input of each technology vs its output.
Such systems has been mainly for the commercial market but with large companies seeking to develop home automation systems based off AI, we are seeing many companies bring many smart home technologies to allow homes to assist in creating a sustainable future.
At studioJLA we are evolving our design approach and knowledge of various technological systems to provide a reactive built environment and systems that reduces our impact to the environment.
