THE OL'FACTORY 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. 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. Research on contemporary projects using "mechanically-produced" energies established a precedent for understanding the meaning of energy as architecture.
This architectural science project was an attempt to elicit the architectural form based on the characteristics and potentials of scent, specifically vanilla, in a semi-controlled and monitored environment. Architecturalizing, vanilla. Vanilla-tecture.
