Focus 2019: Sustainability – Meet Seth
Hello, I’m Seth R. Defore and from Saint Augustine, Florida. I got my bachelor of design in architecture from the University of Florida and now pursuing my Masters at Rice University.
Sustainability is a must. We can no longer go without it. Personally, I focus on sustainability through innovation. For example, passive, solar, mechanical systems etc.
Though architecture has been challenging, I have not been impressed with architectures technical or sustainable efforts.
I’m currently in my documentation portion of my thesis.
In short, my thesis explores a method of transferring natural light and views between different parts of a building. The architectural implications of this is to bringing daylight and view into deep space displaced from the building façade.
Simplifying the window into two parts, natural light and view, I introduced location displacement – the concept by which your location in spacetime is no longer related to your sensorial connection to the physical world.
