Fab Fest 2017 participation

Asterios will participate as a mentor in FAB FEST 2017, in collaboration with Yota Adilenidou, University of Westminster. Project Title: Kinetic Skin 

The proposal is a component based structure serving as a roof that controls light diffusion and shading. The tiles/components will be able to change during the day in order to transform the opacity of the structure and the light permeability. The movement will be controlled either by sensors or manually amended and altered, in accordance with the design concept. The project is a collaboration between the University of Westminster and the University of Liverpool. In the first stage, students from both universities will develop their concept ideas individually, supervised be Yota and Asterios. In the second stage students and mentors will vote for the best solution and proceed in with its detailing and fabrication in teamwork.
