Being reinvented and reborn for a more innovative and sustainable world: Aurora - DesignOnWeb
Aurora is an installation that combines design, science and industry to collaboratively imagine and create sustainable innovations capable of harmonizing product, nature and life
The program design "Design for Life" , an experimental research project investigating the principles of circular innovation, presents Aurora, the culmination of this investigation, by Arthur Mamou-Mani and Dassault Systèmes, on display in London in October 2021 during the opening weeks of the Design Museum's Waste Age exhibition
"Aurora celebrates a new dawn in the wake of the global trauma of the global pandemic," says architect Arthur Mamou-Mani. "As designers, architects and engineers, we can now work together to create shared experiences, rather than fixed projects, empowering people with the medium of production and creativity"
"From material selection to design and fabrication," the architect continues, "Aurora marks the end of the take-it-or-leave-it era and the dawn of built environments designed for regeneration with an inclusive approach that weaves together knowledge and know-how from multiple disciplines"
Following molecular-level analysis of different materials, plant-derived polylactic acid (PLA) can be 3D printed, assembled, recycled and printed again in a continuous, closed loop until it can be composted back to Earth. The group used Dassault Systèmes' 3DEXPERIENCE platform on the cloud to create a virtual reality of its own that exactly replicates the exhibit at the London Museum
