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.
