Cabin of 3D Printed Curiosities

The 3D Printed Cabin brings many of Emerging Objects’ material, software, and hardware experiments together to demonstrate the architectural potential of additive manufacturing on a weather tight, structurally sound building. Due to a housing emergency in the Bay Area, the Oakland City Council eased restrictions on the construction of secondary housing units, or backyard cottages. This has opened … Read More

Future Relics

What object would you like archaeologists 1000 years from now to remember our present day culture by? When Google Arts and Culture launched their first lab experiment in India, they invited people, visiting the ‘India and the World: A History in Nine Stories,’ exhibition at the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Vastu Sangrahalaya (CSMVS) museum in Mumbai … Read More

Bad Ombres v.1

In early 2017 President Donald J. Trump suggested that there were “bad hombres” along the border and has continued to suggest he would build a wall to divide Mexico from the United States. His pronunciation of the spanish word hombre, which simply means “man”, sounded more like ombré, which means a gradual blend of one color … Read More

Seed Stitch

The Seed Stitch Wall is a prototype for a 3D printed ceramic wall cladding system. Whereas most applications of 3D printing demonstrate how 3D printing allows for mass difference, Seed Stitch is an exercise in mass complexity and allows the influence of the hand, gravity, temperature, and the attempts of a machine to print an … Read More

GCODE.Clay

GCODE.Clay is a series of objects 3D printed in various clays (porcelain, bmix, terra-cotta, and recycled clay) that explore the creative potential of designing with G-code, the language in which people tell computerized machine tools how to make something. In this case the 3D printer is pushed outside the boundaries of what would typically define … Read More

Cool Brick

Evaporative cooling is the addition of water vapor into air, which causes a lowering of the temperature of the air. Before the advent of refrigeration, evaporative cooling was used for millennia. Porous ceramic vessels were used to cool water by evaporation through their walls. Frescoes from about 2500 BC show slaves fanning jars of water to … Read More

Planter Bricks

Designed by Rael San Fratello Architects The Planter Bricks are custom designed concrete masonry units that can hold plants and vegetation. The planter bricks have the potential to counter the heat island effect in big cities through evapotranspiration and pollution conversion. The plants in the wall help mediate the temperature of the microclimate surrounding the … Read More
