The cell wall is a student project submitted as the final project for the Dynamic Environment studio. Dynamic Environments studio focuses on the development of reconfigurable structures that enhance occupants' social and physical experiences of the built environment. Students were asked to identify problems related to the built environment and propose solutions that take advantage of the reconfigurable structures.
Students: "Our bodies need a good quantity of light at the right intensity and at the right time of day to act as cues for our internal body clock. Lighting the morning helps us wake up and feel alert and energized, while dimmer light at night cues us to go to sleep and stay asleep. During the day, we need high levels of light to stay alert for school or work, while in the evening and night we want to start feeling more relaxed and ready for bed. Many children’s hospitals provide dedicated playrooms and programming that allow children to harness power through play. Play is a natural part of a child’s life, benefiting children physically and emotionally. Our Cell Wall is a kinetic, light diffusing screen system which attaches to the windows of hospital playrooms to encourage improvements in mood, stabilization of rhythm, decreased depression scores, and cognition."
