Landscape Machine CHECKLIST

Figure 2: An energy systems diagram of a hypothetical Landscape Machine described by making use of COOS – the key concepts of evolutionary thermodynamics described by Tiezzi. A set of interacting processes, energy and material flows that resemble functions and services performed by a hypothetical landscape machine. Processes, systems and connections among them have a […]

Landscape Machine TYPOLOGY

Recent examples of landscape machines envisioned in the design laboratory at Wageningen University have revealed several types that clarify the diversity of living system design. Even while all designs reveal a site-consciousness, they differ in their productive aim and living system methods. production type, example see here waste treatment type, example see here system repair […]

Landscape Machine ABC

A – Aim is to design a sublime and productive landscape (food, energy and pollution treatment by bio mechanical development).   B – Behavior of future Landscape Machines is described by the COOS acronym: “they are open systems with their own evolutionary autonomy […], they are confined inside a bounded space in which they develop […]

Landscape Machine DEFINITION

The definition of a landscape machine can principally be explained in threefold: (1) It is a productive landscape that by a design intervention will resolve an existent malfunction in the physical environment. This malfunction may already be explicitly present by negatively affected ecological, societal and economic development. The malfunction may also be artificially introduced in […]

EVOLVING LEAN DESIGN THINKING BY EXPLORING SKILLS FOR INNOVATION THROUGH DESIGN

Researched by Marie Baartmans and Marijn Struik of Happyland Collective   Through conducting a research about Lean Startup and Design Thinking we became aware of the fact that a designer can, besides designing the product, also design the process. How to arrange the context in such a way that the implementation of the product will […]
