Postler Fergusson Microclimates: sustainable structural patterning

"Traditional Islamic architecture dealt sustainably with the harsh desert climate by careful control of light and airflow through elements such as the masharabiya, wind towers, and earthen walls. Using custom software, Microclimates is based on a three-dimensional interpretation of the masharabiya built from local clay with a complex internal structure whose large internal surface area efficiently conditions air passing through it by evaporative cooling.

Combining the principals behind these ancient building elements with the most advanced computer-aided manufacturing techniques, Microclimates is not just an installation, but a building language that can be reused again and again to create new public spaces.

I like the way functionality is combined with patterning aesthetics and the ability to adapt each structure here, even though it does look a bit like real-life lego!

Merc(i) Auto extraordinare

Mercedes Benz Advanced Design "Exploring lightweight forms to play with strength, perspective, and transparency, the results resemble polygons, honeycombs (all sharing one central perspective point), string art, and woven chaos."

A bit of aggressive product design but how awesome are these concept cars. Be interesting to see how much can be applied to the real thing.
