Hypernatural now has a web presence. The book Hypernatural: Architecture's New Relationship with Nature (Princeton Architetural Press, March 2015) drops soon. But the project does not end there. Today marks the launch of Hypernatural.net, an ongoing enterprise that will present more outstanding projects that explore the relationship between nature and design.
Coming Soon! Hypernatural: Architecture’s New Relationship with Nature (Princeton Architectural Press, March 2015) is close to being released. We are really excited to see the volume reviewed on Architect Magazine's website. The volume, a collaboration between Transmaterial author and materials expert Blaine Brownell and Marc, explores the process of working with nature—rather than against it or in a way that only emulates it—to enhance the performance of a technology or design. Blair contributed research and core diagrams to the book and the forward was written by Michael Weinstock of the AA. Click on the images to see the review.
