- Radial House
Technology transfer skin strategy
- Radial House (formerly named 'Synapse House') takes influence from design concepts developed while a design intern at EMBT. Further study in how surface patterns of tires perform created a flexible component system deployed as a housing concept.
Designed so an individual can construct it to accommodate a variety of potential use scenarios. The system is designed with a bias pattern that channels water and heat similar to treads on a radial tire that carry the same function for traction and longevity. An inner 'liner' coordinates with this exterior logic; thematically pairing the interior space to an exterior pattern.
