Allen Sayegh (Co-founder of INVIVIA) and Ingeborg Rocker (Co-founder of Rocker-Lange Architects) curated and sponsored the installation, an unexpected fabric space that manipulates the architectural frame to blur the boundaries between inside and outside and piques the viewers’ awareness of their bodies in space.

These are a series of experiments, in which the designer try to use parametric and digital method to realize these interesting optical illusion effects and generate 3d geometry or space rather than just 2d painting. Continue reading The design task of this project was to design a multifunctional theatre inside an old gasholder in the Hague the Netherlands. In the a new developed masterplan he Gasholder is placed in a small lake surrounded by different thematic islands. The location of these islands are not fixed an can move dynamically around the theatre.
Designed by Maria Mingallon, Sakthivel Ramaswamy, Konstantinos Karatzas Fibre composite adaptive systems is a research project which emulates self-organisation processes in nature by developing a fibre composite that can sense, actuate and hence efficiently adapt to changing environmental conditions. Fibre composites which are anisotropic and heterogeneous offer the possibility for local variations in their material properties. Embedded fibre optics would be used to sense multiple parameters and shape memory alloys integrated in a fibre composite material for actuation.
The coffee table "Sectionimal" was created in 2009 by the Chilean parametric design and digital studio gt_2P. Its design was created from digital modeling with parametric generative algorithms capable of section volumes. The Sectioninal's structure has a free volume sectioned and assembled from its manufacturing plans. This table is part of a series of parametric furniture generated by an algorithmic program of links called SECTION, designed also by the own studio gt_2P. Its materials are Mdf laquered plywood, italian lacquer gloss 20, Pvc foamed (Litecell HD), corian and tempered glass cover 10 mm. TRIANGULATION BLOG

Thursday, 06 January 2011 GreenMuze Staff The Homeostatic Façade System by Decker Yeadon Architects. The Homeostatic Façade is a building thermal control system that uses mechanical-muscle operated, exterior surface-mounted louvers and is a feature of Decker Yeadon Architects' intelligent green-building architectural design. The Homeostatic Façade uses polymer and elastomer louvers with a silver coating that open when illuminated by the sun, and close again as the sun’s heating effect wanes. Homeostatic Façade System

i.M.A.D.E » Archive » Abstractions + Constructions The subject of this foundational, skill-building course – an assignment entitled: “Flat Fabrication” – represented a shift from the immaterial digital realm of three-dimensional modeling software into the world of flat-sheet materials. It involved an investigation of non-planar, complex (“fat”) geometric assemblies and their translation into the “flat” sheet material constructs to be produced using two-dimensional fabrication (laser cutting). Through iterative stages over four weeks, the students developed (and redeveloped) a tectonic, geometric, manufacturing and assembly logic for producing a final material construct for the end of the semester. The students began by devising an appropriate geometric description of the abstraction using developable, planar elements (polygons, triangles, ruled surfaces, circular/spherical approximations) and/or the object’s three-dimensional isoparametric representation, contouring, or some other rationalization.
