Biophilic design. Climate change.
Episode Notes

At her studio Dosu Architecture, Doris Kim Sung (@doriskimsung) pushes the boundaries of sustainable design by inventing smart materials that adapt to their environment. This enables structures to self-ventilate, sun-shade, self-structure and self-assembly in response to changes in temperatures -- all with zero-energy and no controls. What we discuss with Doris:- Her unique perspective on architecture, which centers around making buildings responsive to their environment.- Biophilic designs for structures that support human health.- How her smart material research supports increasing demand for greener buildings.- Her design process and digital fabrication.
