title Kinetair: Interactive Stairs with Multiple Functions
source T. Fukuda, W. Huang, P. Janssen, K. Crolla, S. Alhadidi (eds.), Learning, Adapting and Prototyping - Proceedings of the 23rd CAADRIA Conference - Volume 2, Tsinghua University, Beijing, China, 17-19 May 2018, pp. 369-378
summary Kinetair is an interactive stairs prototype which could change its appearance according to the surrounding conditions, providing a diversity of functions, such as stairs, exhibition walls, furniture and so on. This research is based on the Interactive Architecture theory, integrating with digital fabrication technology. This paper will illustrate the origin of the concept, the concept development process, the fabrication process and the various possible application of Kinetair. This experiment evokes us to rethink the fundamental meanings of the architecture components in a brand new perspective, and stimulates designers to explore the new features of conventional constructions with cutting-edge technologies.
