Origami-Inspired Radiant Cooling for Improved Thermal Health
Origami-inspired Radiant Cooling devices for a broad range of building interiors use microfluidic water-circuits and foldable designs that increase their surface area to achieve more effective cooling.
coldSNAP: Eco-Friendly Air Conditioning
coldSNAP is a low-carbon-footprint evaporative cooling system that reduces indoor air temperature without adding humidity.
Dynamic Daylight Control System
In the U.S. alone, commercial and residential buildings account for more than 40 percent of the total energy consumption – mostly for lighting. What’s more, the deep building layouts that are typical in the U.S. have led to a complete reliance on artificial lighting systems that are less desirable than natural daylight. Many of the...

Science and design are often thought to represent opposite mindsets of analysis versus conjecture, of explanatory versus disruptive modes of thinking. Audacious, provocative, and unconventional work emerges when we cross the traditional disciplinary divide between science and design. This conference assembles thought leaders from both areas who interrogate the space in between through their work.... Free and open to public
Video/AnimationcoldSNAP: Reimagining CoolingWe are reimagining air-conditioners to meet increasing global cooling demand while combatting climate change. cold-SNAP is a new technology that uses advanced materials science and design to make affordable, environmentally-positive eco-friendly air conditioners that work in most climates without the use of synthetic refrigerants.
