StemCloud: oxygen / urban ecologyMarch 15, 2007

STEMcloud, Shoreditch, London. STEMcloud has been developed as a parametric furniture system able to generate spatial atmospheres (clouds) by providing light filtration, privacy and oxygenation. STEM cloud promotes a concentrated experience of man-nature interaction in dense urban contexts where the presence of traditional vegetative systems is close to zero. A series of plug-ins add functionality and customization to the system, introducing artificial lighting, objects containers, pining surfaces, etc. The parametric nature of the single modules allows for a computational definition of the overall clouds; environmental gradients of solar radiation, people flow intensity, co2 emissions can be computed and used as generative environments for the developments of specific clouds/assemblages of STEM.
