Climate Design™ – Wanderings | WEATHERS

• April 29, 2010

Climate Design™ series – Wanderings by Chicago-based design studio WEATHERS investigates its ‘climatic infrastructure’ that augments and re-configures existing external micro-climates for occupation and programmatic use. The attempt is to create multiple zones (micro-climates) that pull from and alter the existing climatic context, creating distinct and definable edges, boundaries and transitions of these materials.

Wanderings‘ can be arranged as a public seating system that provides light and local climatic control along its surface, attractive to human touch and congregation. When the individual units are clustered together, the system intensifies in scope and area to create an inviting micro-climate that provides relief from cool night temperatures and long winter months.

Wanderings belongs to the Climate Design™ series from the WEATHERS office. What window air conditioning units do for the domestic house, and street lighting does for public spaces by extending daylight into darkness so that activities and commerce can occur in the street past nightfall, Climate Design™ intends to do for the private garden, commercial courtyard and city park.

Climate Design™ is an exterior product series that is commercially available for use in residential patios, gardens, public parks and landscapes to enhance and change the local climate of the site. The system is elastic enough to accommodate multiple climates and geographies, dehumidifying the air in more humid climates or providing warming during the cooler months of more temperate zones. This local climate augmentation can increase pedestrian activity and shopping, allowing people to use these outdoor areas over a greater period of the year by expanding and creating new local seasons.

In addition, ‘Wanderings‘ can be arranged as a public seating system that provides light and local climatic control along its surface, attractive to human touch and congregation. When the individual units are clustered together, the system intensifies in scope and area to create an inviting micro-climate that provides relief from cool night temperatures and long winter months.
