Green Bottle – Fer Jerez, SMAR: Guggenheim Uncommons

Gresley Abas Architects invites you to a green bottle talk with Fer Jerez from Western Australia/Madrid based SMAR Architecture Studio, Finalist of the Guggenheim Helsinki Design Competition.

Architecture modernity was first conceived to be at the service of people, but ended up becoming only a visual language… In a Changing Era where most institutions are migrating their public interfaces into cheap digital space instead of investing in physical buildings, the result of the competition was the biggest collection of Icons ever.

But… what you would you do if you had the opportunity to design the next Museum for the biggest Art Brand in the world?

Where:               Gresley Abas | 1/816 Hay Street | Perth CBD

When:                 Friday 9 October | 5:00pm for a 5:30pm start

RSVP:                 contact@gresleyabas.com.au |Monday 5 October

Green Bottle – Don Cooper: The Atmospheric Vortex Engine

Gresley Abas invites you to a green bottle talk with Donald Cooper, Vortex Engineer.


The atmospheric vortex engine has been developed and patented independently over several decades by the engineer Louis Michaud in Canada and physicist Norman Louat in Australia.
The system makes use of the strong positive feedback characteristic of atmospheric vortices to utilise low grade energy resources for the purpose of power generation and climate moderation. An atmospheric vortex is an example of what Ilya Prigogine calls a dissipative structure. The vortex is able to reduce entropy locally, while increasing entropy on a global scale. The system can reduce the global greenhouse effect and aid in moderating global temperature.

The concept has been endorsed in principle by highly regarded experts:
“…What’s necessary at this point is to do proofs of concept,” says professor Kerry Emanuel, the hurricane expert at MIT. “[The] idea is pretty simple and elegant. My own feeling is that we ought to be pouring money into all kinds of alternative energy research. There’s almost nothing to lose in trying this…”


Location               Gresley Abas Studio | 1/816 Hay Street | Perth CBD

Date                      Friday 23rd May | 5:00pm for a 5:30pm start

RSVP                     contact@gresleyabas.com.au
