Description

Our research is a proof-of-concept for a building system of the future. We have developed a system of folding cartridges that integrate the technology, electrical and plumbing embedded in a typical house into a pre-fabricated, shippable component. Such a scheme condenses the volume of a room into a modular block, dramatically reducing on-site construction time and creating a space that is both efficient and customizable. A bedroom, study and interstitial moving closet were developed utilizing the proposed cartridge system, showcasing opportunities for flex living space and integrated technology. An actuated murphy bed/office desk, responsive, mood-sensitive lighting, and a smart mirror were linked to a consolidated wardrobe - forming part of a resident-sensitive Internet of Things. The student team was involved in every facet of this study, from research and prototyping to the ultimate construction and presentation of our work at KBIS, an industry show in Orlando.
