D-Shape: Freeform Architectural 3D Printing

Image by Monolite UK Ltd. Computation has enabled designers to manifest virtually any structure from the impossibly intricate to the most complexly curved surfaces we can conceive. Of course our Achilles heel is manufacturing these forms. Up to this point architects have had to achieve this by subtractive means (e.g. CNC routing, water jet, plasma, etc.) resulting in a slow and arduous process that yields a […] Continue reading →

NonLin/Lin Pavillion by Marc Fornes

mg_0761_ps_tvm_s French architect Marc Fornes, a pioneer and visionary of computational design based in Brooklyn, has designed and installed nonLin/Lin at the Frac Centre in Orleans France. Its an impressive pavilion design that, unlike many of the computationally driven constructions we’ve seen, attempts to resolve a one-to-one representation of a true architectural gesture that could potentially be replicated indefinitely. Definitely worth checking […] Continue reading →

Listener – Behavioral Architectures

Image by Mette Ramsgard Thomsen of CITA CITA is an innovative research environment part of the Royal Danish Academy of Architecture that explores the emergent intersections between architecture and digital technologies. Identifying core research questions into how space and technology can be probed, CITA seeks to investigate how the current forming of a digital culture impacts on architectural thinking and practice. The program’s projects are […] Continue reading →

Thermaespheres – Proposal for Public Thermal Bath in Athens, Greece

Future Cities Lab is an experimental design and research office based in San Francisco, California and Athens, Greece. Design principals Jason Kelly Johnson (creator of Grasshopper’s plug-in Firefly) and Nataly Gattegno have collaborated on a range of award-winning projects that focus on the intersection of design with advanced fabrication technologies, robotics, responsive building systems and public space.

Philips Glowing Bacteria Bio Light – The Light Source of the Future

Dutch electronics powerhouse Philips released last December details about their innovative research in renewable and naturally inspired lighting. BioLight is a look into utilizing glowing bacteria to eventually light our homes without the use of electricity. The same way certain fireflies and insect species glow at night, certain bacteria carry the same genes and Philips […] Continue reading →
