In the course of this thesis by Anna Vasileiou, author aims to explore ways of introducing computational tools into design processes of advanced geometry for a more creative and open-ended human-machine symbiosis.
The Waiheke Gateway Pavilion by Stevens Lawson Architects, washed ashore of Matiatia Bay forming a ceremonial entry to 2017’s Headland Sculpture on the Gulf exhibition. The skeletal architectural sculpture is an inventive elaboration on the New Zealand traditions.
The Greenhouse and Cabinet of Future Fossils was commissioned by the American Philosophical Society Museum, funded by Heritage Philadelphia Program, a program of The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage.
Playing on the form of the bees’ compound eye, Harrison Atelier’s Pollinators Pavilion produces new habitat for solitary bee species. A first pavilion is under construction at Old Mud Creek Farm, part of Abby Rockefeller’s 2,500 acre farm.
Borne from the complex negotiation between liquid mass and tensile constraint, flexible formwork castings are resonant with material energy. Hard as stone, yet visually supple and fluid, the pre- cast architectural assemblies produced using flexible formwork techniques.
Vlad Kissel has installed Zern’, a wooden, teardrop-shaped pavilion, in one of moscow’s open squares. The structure’s main timber framework also contains other natural materials.
The Architectural Association School of Architecture has unveiled their 2009 summer pavilion, designed by third year Danecia Sibingo, its undulating form was outside the AA in London’s Bedford Square.
This study by Prageeth Jayathissa, first presents a performative design environment that combines multiple technological branches into a single automated work-flow.
In this grasshopper example file, you can model a simple folding window mechanism.
Researchers from ETH Zurich and the University of Stuttgart used novel structural form-finding methods and simple fabrication techniques to design and construct a mushroom-like structure at the University’s main campus in Stuttgart, Vaihingen.
The current research is focused on the implementation of hierarchical porosity in the field of architecture and the use of stereotomic models in order to generate, articulate and evaluate intentional voids in architectural and structural design.
During milan design week 2015, acclaimed Japanese architect Kengo Kuma has collaborated with Kitchenhouse to produce ‘Irori’, a contemporary kitchen space that represents a new way of living.
This doctoral thesis by Jonas Runberger is situated within the digital design field of architecture, and is a continuation of the licentiate thesis Architectural Prototypes: Modes of Design Development and Architectural Practice.
