Gerald Russelman is a master in Architecture and Building Technology who has developed his design skills working alongside some of the world’s top architecture firms. Based predominantly in China, his studio, Studio Russelman, have been commissioned on a diverse range of projects, from the eye-catching Tianfu District high-rise in Chengdu to the Dakou National Park in Hubei Province.
True to form, the video shows the world Gerald Russelman builds to be one of brick and mortar, steel and glass, wood and ceramics – using ConceptD devices to create a tactile structure which shapes its tangible environment. The finished product is a modular housing block, designed to make all the constituent technical parts of a home fit into an easily assembled container module. The project is intended to be a carbon neutral and fully circular building, anticipating how living spaces may function by the year 2050.
