The British artist Walter Jack, the founder of Walter Jack studio, presented a truly dynamic installation, ‘Crushed Wall’. The sensual 40-metre long, 3-metre high wall installation utilizes concrete material in such a way that it appears soft and malleable.

Circular Attractor Grasshopper3d Definition

Circular Attractor

In this definition you can model a parametric surface which is basically controlled by a series of circles with different radiuses and locations. At the end you can have the sections for fabrication.

Wave Sections Grasshopper3d Definition

Wave Sections

In this defintion you can model a parametric wave like structure and two waffle parts which can hold those sections together.

Folding Spacer Chair

Spacer Chair

A soft and open mesh fabric turns into a spacious chair by a synthesis of constructive folding and hardening. Inspired by the carpet production process, Studio Samira Boon designed the chair based on the same principles.

Minimal Complexity Installation

Minimal Complexity

Romanian architect Vlad Tenu was awarded for his project ‘Minimal Complexity’ which along with its aesthetic beauty, technical superiority and elegance of detailing, the proposal was chosen because it employs structural robustness, material efficiency and an inherent logic of assembly.

Modular Systems

Modular Systems

This project by Vaishnavi Ramesh was a study and an exploration of how modular systems work on a fundamental level, and how they can be used in everyday design.The modular system revolves around the principle of repetitiveness to play with the figurative and structural role of design.
