Radiant Architecture

Radiant Heating and Cooling System as Architecture

How many layers of architecture can merge to target for creating occupiable spaces? How convection, conduction and radiation can be used as methods to create gradient territories for different purposes? can Radiant heating and cooling system become the architecture itself? How material can facilitate absorption, storing and conducting heat?

An Architecture Without Skin

As mentioned in the previous posts, our modern architecture has got distanced from its exterior environment by thick layers of construction. Also, in contrast to the primary human life, the living spaces are predetermined and territorialized for specific uses; in other words, the user is not given freedom to wonder around and occupy the space the way they want.  What if the tubes used for radiant heating and cooling becomes the architecture without the need for thick separation between inside and outside? the density of the tubes determine how hot/cold the space is and create occupiable spaces without specific predetermination.

Tube Density & Temperature Grediance

Do we really need to heat all the interior spaces? what if the density of tubes and volume of water passing in the tubes, and the position of spaces around the circulating water create a gradient of temperature? Can the exterior shell emerge from the tube system creating the interior spaces that also function as furniture?

Temperature Gradience

How this system could be applied to the architectural platforms? how physicality impact flow of air? how generation of different programs on each platform can be influenced by this system?

Evacuated Tube Solar Collector

The Materialities and functions of the tubes should be precisely studied and understood. To reduce the consumption of energy, can we exploit solar energy with evacuated tube solar collectors? How can we manage absorption, conduction, convection and storage of heat through their materiality based on their use in specific spaces?

Heat Loss and Required Tempreture

As heated liquid circulates through the tubes it losses energy and the temperature changes in different zones; how this feature can impact the organization of spaces?
