Structural Ducts

Duct Network

 

Using Furnace and duct network is another way to bring the interiors' temperature to the comfort zone. Ducts position as another layer beneath the structural layer. There is potential to merge these two layer; for example, ducts can expand and function as slabs.

Sensory Air Conditioning

To reduce consumption of energy, today, the lights that have sensors and automatically turn on and off by presence of users are common-place. This idea might be applicable to air conditioners too.

Fluid Air Conditioning

Do we really need to enclose the interiors tightly in order to air-condition it? Dose every spot of interior space need air conditioning?
Do we really need to enclose the interiors tightly in order to air-condition it? Dose every spot of interior space need air conditioning? If the zone where the user is be conditioned, we do not really need to trap the air inside the envelope. If we create the possibility to circulate the conditioned air in the spot of occupation; we can break the envelop and remove this rigid separation between inside and outside. Imagine if the conditioned air is stored inside the slabs( flooring and ceiling) and the sliding tiles follow the user and open up to push and pull the air to maintain their path in the comfort zone.
The flooring, the furniture all can be permeable and conditionally circulate the air.
The flooring, the ceiling, the furniture all can be part of the automated system which are  permeable and conditionally circulate the air.

Flexible-Permeable Floor Finish

Rather than sliding tiles, more flexible material like feather can be substituted and carry out the idea of permeability.
