Doris Sung is a biologist and architect elaborating on the use of smart materials like termo-bio-metal and different geometry, 3D printing and digital technology in architecture. She is working with self assembling systems, designing hardware, creating minirobotics and resilient buildings where people rely less on air conditioning in the summer time and developing window systems which retain the view while blocking the sunlight.

Smart about our Shit
BY BARBARA PENNER
@ TOTO TOILET ARCHITECTURE
ON SEP 16, 2014
Being smart about our "shit", is what may save us in the future.
Barbara Penner expresses her academic knowlegde of toilets and what goes into them. How much do we flush away, and what people can do to conserve their waste, not only the "stuffs" that goes through us, but the water that is going through the pipes as well. It doesn't take a 'rocket surgeon' to know, that in developing countries, water is scarce and highly valued. So it is a opportunity to develope toilets that do not need the use of water, and uses our human wastes intellegently.

The difference between smart and intelligent
BY TOBIAS BERNETH
@ VOL 55
ON FEB 09, 2016
Tobias Berneth, Founder of Things to Be, discusses the question "Why can't smart technology be smarter?" he challanges this question by comparing technology. What is the difference between smart and intelligent products? We have smart products – products that can store, and deliver information. The intelligent product would be able to recognize redundancies and patterns of information.
Smart products await your input. Do you loose time by using smart products? By using intelligent products, would you be given time, as the product is constantly changing after your needs?
Berneth compares these intelligent products to making new friends. He asks, "How do you design something that collects your data?”. It’s like making friends, make products that people can communicate with in a human way and that can understand how you do it.

ON MAR 10, 2018
Faisal Arshad talks about space articulation and materials in his projects, including his lake-house passion project. Space utilization, materials, nostalgia, nature, cultural values, family and even language all tie into his ideas of what architectural projects and their essence is all about. Mr. Arshad's large collection of design and participation in architecture design all around the world bring wisdom and experience that makes for a great talk.
