Markus Kayser, Solar Sinter Project
It's a solar powered CNC that melts the sand in a desert with a giant lens. It's design sustainability of the project lays on the materials and the production capability.
Depends on the project, each project have it's own favorite material. If I have to define one thru all of our work I would say light and although technology is the platform of our times it's not indispensable.
Our process is very reactive, sometimes from the client, sometimes from the site or the program. We don't start with preconceive ideas. We invest the most of our process in the creative and detail phases.
Breakfast with family, teaching design studio or working in the morning in the pragmatics of the office, lunch with family and in the afternoon work on ideas and designs, the night is always more uncertain and varied.
Production phase can be managed, creativity time it's highly unexpected, you never know when inspiration will hit you, sometimes is an immediate and impulsive response to the problem, others it's digging through the research and starting all design possibilities.
