Umbrella facade by 3GATTI. The new façade for the ex Madrid pavilion in the Shanghai Expo site allows people to interact with it. They can open or close the shades to protect the glass from the sun and allow more light during the winter. Façade contains umbrellas which can be fully opened and make the façade completely flat or closed - then the light is able to fully come inside. The mechanical parts are made of stainless steel, the frames of aluminum and the external surface of thin corten.

House from the Air by Austin Maynard Architects!  The Airdrop House is delivered to flooded places by standard military helicopters. When the house lands in the correct orientation, it begins to draw water like a sponge and expands its diameter from 1 m to 7m. Locals can move the house in a more convenient location. The structure made from foam polymer contains modified seeds from food crop vegetation. It means that it can produce food and make shading and improve its thermal performance.

Radiant Soil is the installation created by Philip Beesley. The Radiant Soil was presented at Espace EDF in Paris in 2013. The suspended cloud-like structure was made from biomimetic components of polymer, metal and glass, where each of them contains a near-living carbon-capture metabolism. Because of its shape memory mechanisms, The Radiant Soil reacts to viewers as they approach by setting off burst of light that simulates the protocells and trigger chains of movement.

Echoviren made by Smith|Allen studio is entirely 3D printed pavilion which is made of over 500 interlocking components made from PLA bio-plastic. It means that it will decompose back naturally within 30-50 years. Meanwhile it will become a micro-habitat for insects, moss and birds. “Echoviren exposes an ecosystem of dynamic natural and unnatural interventions: the interplay of man and nature moderated by technology over the centuries.”

Tent of the Future for Refugees by Abeer Spikily. The tent is made from waterproof fabric, which is attached to bendable plastic that can be moved and can create vent holes. The whole structure is easy to fold up, which makes it perfect for transportation and storage.  Moreover, the fabric acts as a solar panel and can be configured to exhaust hot air at the top in summer or retain heat in the winter, which makes it a perfect shelter not only in hot climate, but also in cold one.

Makako Floating School by NLÉ - Shaping the Architecture of Developing Cities is an innovative project which reacts to the climate change.  The project was created for a community of Makako, a slum neighborhood of the Lagos Lagoon in Lagos, Nigeria. The project uses local materials which reflect the culture of Makako people. “Its main aim is to generate sustainable, ecological, alternative building systems and urban water cultures for the teeming population of Africa’s coastal regions.”

School Library in Gando made by Kéré Architecture. “Working across continents from Africa to Europe, we strive to engage localities in our design and construction approach. Our philosophy of providing more with less fosters innovation and resourcefulness in our practice, using local materials, local knowledge, and local technologies to create holistic and sustainable design solutions.” The walls of the library are made with clay and the façade around the library with eucalyptus.

Robotically fabricated Woodchip Barn Students from London's Architectural Association School of Architecture created a robotically fabricated barn in a forest in Dorset, England. The structure uses 25 forks which were harvested from the forest and 3D scanned to determine the arrangement. Afterwards, the digital model was translated into fabrication information with which Hooke Park’s new robotic arm transformed each fork into a finished component.

In 2015, on Chicago Architecture Biennial was presented the first architectural installation “Rock Print” which was built from low-grade granular material and constructed by robotic machines. Rock Print was created by Gramazio Kohler Research, a research group at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich (Eand the Self-Assembly Lab, MIT at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in Cambridge. The installation didn’t use any mortar and was built only from rocks and thread.

4D-printed structure which reacts to water! A team of scientists at the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard University and the Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences Sciences (SEAS) created a new microscale printing method to to create a transformable object.   The 4D-printed object combines three dimensions with the fourth - time. Scientists were inspired by the way plants change shape over time.

Self-healing highways! Dr Erik Schlangen, and his postdoc researcher, Alvaro Garcia from TU Delft are pioneers in experiments with self-healing materials. They created a self-healing asphalt, which contains small steel wool fibers capable of repairing micro-cracks in the roads.

Self–Repairing Architecture by Rachel Armstrong, a professor of Experimental Architecture in Black Sky Thinker. The problem of Venice sinking is well known and many architects and engineers are trying to solve that problem. The artificial “reef” could be grown underneath Venice to prevent the city's foundations from being eroded.  Photo: Rachel Armstrong

Drones could be programmed to construct buildings! Swiss architecture firm Gramazio & Kohler Architects and roboticist Raffaello D'Andrea collaborated with ETH Zürich to program drones to construct the six meters tall tower, made out of 1.500 elements at the Frac Centre-Val de Loire in Orléans, France.

Doris Kim Sung's installation “Bloom” in Material & Applications Gallery in Los Angeles is an example of using smart thermobimetal tiles. The form is made out of 14 000 tiles with no two of the same pieces. Each tile curls automatically when the outdoor temperature rises above 70F or when the sunrays fall on the surface.
