Translated Geometries AutoShelter
2015 Catalyst Program

Physical spaces are static and not optimized to their context. Our initiative is a transformable, transportable envelope able to adjust to constantly changing users' needs. Offering an optimized design to environmental conditions it generates a self-sustainable system. Thus, it constitutes a dynamic sheltering solution to evolving heterotopic spaces, like refugee-camps.

Vertical Axis Wind Turbine
2015 Catalyst Program

The strategy is a patented innovation (Patent Registration Nr. US8.282.236B2) for the optimized operation of Vertical Axis Wind Turbines (VAWT) that can be utilized in multiple scales to achieve an Energy-Plus balance in products and buildings, as illustrated in two projects: the Self Sustaining Street Light and Turbine-House

WikiHouse Commons
2015 Catalyst Program

WikiHouse is an open source building system. We are building a digital commons, where all designers, inventors & users collaborate to develop and share high-performance, low-cost, low-energy building solutions that are then owned by everyone. These solutions can be downloaded, locally 'printed' and self-assembled to make sustainable, resilient, affordable homes.
