Instruments

• Understanding First Principals and Enabling Technologies – Materials, Manufacturing Methods, Math. • Tools – NFRC tools – push to expand into the 3rd and 4th dimension – (time) • Expand the data sets and performance criteria to include embodied energy, embodied carbon, and recyclability


Enabling Technologies– as ancient as they are new Shelter

Thermodynamics

Agriculture

Water access

Textiles


Analytics

More analysis & More data does not necessarily mean better design. The right analysis, the right data, at the right time can mean lower risk and more innovation. Creative problem solving cannot be measured – it is non linear. It is sporadic. It requires talent and talent is hard to measure, it tends to be experiential meaning it is the experience of experience
