Continuous Variation, M4H is a Vertical Studio where MSc. 1 & MSc. 3 Hyperbody Students worked on the same urban site, MerweVierhavens (M4H), exchanging information and sharing parameters, data and site analysis inside the same framework.
After mapping site conditions, MSc. 1 students created new scenarios for reuse and explored how partial (de)construction and refurbishing can improve the existent SOM Towers. A vertical city was developed around the concepts of public and private gardens that facilitate 24/7 economies, contemporary culture-driven scenarios (nomadic lifestyle), and energy efficient design-to-building and operation systems.
In this context, MSc 1 students developed integrated designs where embedded interactive systems are employed for spatial reconfiguration and climate control, CO2 reduction, distributed and renewable energy production.
