Green Prize Winner Joseph Thompson

Congratulations to BAC Distance M.Arch student Joseph Thompson for winning the Green Prize in Uni-Systems’ Kinetic Architecture Competition!

The competition called for entries showing how kinetic architecture (transformative mechanized structures that change with climate, need or purpose) can solve real world issues in the built environment.

Joseph's project - titled Responsive Architecture: Harnessing the Potential of Adaptive and Kinetic Building Design - took the position that if architects consider nature's ability to adapt to variable climatic conditions as a way to regulate energy use, then the resulting architecture will form relationships with the natural environment that will be responsive to the forces acting upon it offering reduced environmental impact.
