THE OL'FACTORY or VANILLATECTURE
This architectural science project examines a potential future of architectural form, tectonics and environment by deploying energy as a "building material" with architectural implications - as demonstrated by the history of steel and concrete. Specifically it elicited architectural form based on the characteristics and potentials of scent, architecturalizing vanilla, in a controlled environment. The study of intensities, gradients, and dynamic invisible but traceable boundaries amplified by augmenting the human senses or the energies themselves reinforces the architectural viability of forms of energy.
