Abstract: The built environment is positioned uniquely at the intersection of all three pillars of sustainability: society, economy and the environment. Systems of materials and physical interaction persist through all these domains that can only be leveraged through interdisciplinary investigation. We present a survey of projects and concepts that have been developed and studied at the CHAOS (Cooling and Heating for Architecturally Optimized Systems) at Princeton University.
