Flood House: Bartlett Materialisation Grant 2014
This collaborative project with the Bartlett School of Architecture will realize the construction of a new flood-responsive architecture sited in the Thames Estuary. The project titled the ‘Flood House’, proposes a small-scale prototype structure that will function as part projected future dwelling, part practical laboratory and part 1:1 case study for how certain construction materials operate and perform within the very particular tide environment. Through the use of a unique cross-disciplinary approach, the project team will use their specialist expertise to create a project that is conceived between architecture, environmental research and art practice. IEDE staff will lead on the development of whole-building simulation models in order to assess the hygrothermal performance of the building materials used in the construction and the ventilation potential for the building. They will also provide advice on the construction materials used in order to minimize the risk of microbial contamination and subsequent indoor air quality issues that may arise when structures are exposed to long-term damp. The project has been awarded the 2014 Bartlett Research Materialisation Grant which is awarded annually by the Faculty through the Bartlett Research Challenges to materialize cross-disciplinary research and is also being supported by Arup Engineers and Smart Planning.
