080 - Localizing Air

Joshua Collins & Robert Collins (additional design / build collaborators to be determined)

Nova Scotia, Canada

*Portfolios: *both portfolios currently being updated.


The proposal is a series of system strategies acting in concert to effectively mediate the Heat, Flow and Humidity of air with respect to human habitation. The form of the building can be readily altered to site dynamics and allows these strategies to be developed and calibrated in response to specific local environmental conditions.

Furthermore, we propose to be active parties in the construction of this project, treating the entire process as an opportunity to explore and develop these systems amongst a wide range of individuals. The design/build process itself serves as a teaching tool. The building becomes a study in cultivating an awareness and appreciation for the Qualities of Air.

A more thorough explanation of strategies can be witnessed in the full six page proposal.
