Our proposal focuses on offering potential experimental shelter and transportation solutions to users and communities intent on occupying areas prone to current and future sea level rise.
Fundamental to this research is the concept of autonomous devices which design, through sensor and user data, highly customized and self-sustainable habitats through the utilization of harvesting localized materials for additive manufacturing. In this circumstance, the vehicle will serve as both the manufacturing generator as well as having the ability to intervene as a functional appendage with its built habitat.
Naturally, this habitat will create a disparate relationship between the car and the organic additive surfaces. As a result, context-specific augmented reality interfaces will provide an affinity between the two typologies.
Central to our proposal is the idea of the vehicle as a physical and functional generator. Physically, the vehicle will construct the habitat; while, functionally, it will extend its spatiality and functionality. This functional transformation will occur as the car intervenes by attaching to each space of the habitat and extends said space dimensionally and functionally.
Beside, what is also significant is how we visualize the space and develop the design. We image in the future, hologram interface will be applied to every corner of our living space and change the way we communicate with the system and data. Meanwhile we present our design with AR and VR.
