In studio one transformable architecture was defined as deployable kinetic moreover as a temporary collapsible structure that can be easily disassembled and transported from site A to site B and reused repeatedly. In studio two and three, it is seen through a different lens as a permanent structure that can adapt to the future needs of the user and the unknown future allowing real-time reconfiguration and disassembly.
The world is facing a massive climate crisis and we as architects must stand together against designing buildings for landfills we cannot continue to build the way we have if we want to be sustainable and save the planet.
THERE IS NO MORE SPACE.
I am proposing to look at the transformable architecture with new eyes and as the door to a new way of designing that is loose-fit enabling design for the unknown future and design for deconstruction and disassembly (DfD) which is an alternative to demolition and waste. Transformable architecture can be many things from temporary deployable structures that can be collapsed and easily transported to permanent adaptable and flexible building that awaits to be used again for new purposes.
WE MUST STOP DEMOLISHING BUILDINGS.
By planning the design for future deconstruction and reuse, this project intends to be adaptable for accommodating future users, flexible not a fixed object that can be disassembled into parts giving new life to future projects and avoiding waste.
