Adaptable Architecture: Meeting Dome by Kristoffer Tejlgaard & Benny Jepsen

Adaptable Architecture: Meeting Dome by Kristoffer Tejlgaard & Benny Jepsen | Prionomy | Scoop.it
Canadian architects Kristoffer Tejlgaard and Benny Jepsen have slightly altered the mathematical elements of a geodesic dome to form a new modular pavilion.


By using different sized triangular frames with both spherical and perpendicular surfaces, a new lattice form was birthed from that of a traditional geodesic dome. The result is a method of construction that allows surfaces to be extruded, scaled, pushed and pulled while maintaining logic.
Through this altered composition, small niches and crevices opened. Steel footings connect the wooden frame, made of locally-sourced pine. Steel nodes were made to fit standard rafter sizes, making the whole design movable.
The façade's curved surfaces are covered with recycled wood panels, creating opaque faces. Perpendicular surfaces made of PVC film allow light to enter while opening views to the outside. The project was commissioned by BL (Denmark Public Housing) for the Peoples Meeting in Denmark.

Connect:Homes - Reinventing Modular Prefab

Connect:Homes - Reinventing Modular Prefab | Prionomy | Scoop.it

Today, two prefab veterans launch their website for a new company called Connect:Homes with a mission to 'deliver modern homes that are affordable, green, and available wherever you are'. 

The co-founders Jared Levy and Gordon Stott, both formerly with Marmol Radziner Prefab, started the Los Angeles-based enterprise to reinvent modular prefab and deliver homes that are predictably priced, inherently green, and shipped most anywhere at a lower cost.

Coates Design Architects’ Eco-Pak Container homes

Coates Design Architects’ Eco-Pak Container homes | Prionomy | Scoop.it

Seattle Architect Matthew Coates, President of Coates Design Architects, has teamed up with Aircraft Structural Engineer James Green of Building Container LLC, to create a container home like no other.

Imagine a container that can be delivered to nearly any site on the globe and enclosed within are the structural components to build a house. Better yet….there’s no need to return the container; it becomes an integral part of the structure.

The Coates-Green team turns the idea of container homes inside out, literally.

The traditional container home uses the box as shelter; the team’s improved concept integrates the container into the structure of the home. For example, it may be reborn as the kitchen, living room or bedroom. The original idea came about when Green designed and built a home in remote Turkey on a site stipulating no concrete foundation. Using a shipping container, the conventional concrete foundation was replaced with removable frames to support the container and extended framework, forming the structure for the house...
