Streamlining Models | Ongoing Research | 2014-present
Physical environmental models such as wind tunnels and water tables are conventionally understood as technical tools that are distinct from the design models they test. A series of designed and fabricated environmental models hybridise technical and design concerns, revealing complex exchanges between (air and water) flows and static materials of construction.The design and fabrication of the environmental models yield as much insight about how environmental phenomena behave as do the designs tested within them. Streamlining is understood both as a flow visualisation technique as well as a design strategy of friction/turbulence reduction.
