Turbulent Surfaces

B Arch, , 2019

Turbulent Surfaces rethinks the megastructure typology as a conscious mechanism, and acknowledges Reyner Banham’s concept of air flow as energy that can mobilize an environment and derive its form from it. The project uses fluid simulations to visualize flow, forming a feedback loop between architecture and environmental forces such as turbulence, vacuum, and smooth ventilation. Turbulent Surfaces is a system that intensifies the air flow and topographic conditions of any location, and can be deployed anywhere.
