    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.

    jordan SQUIRES: This project is about converting ideas pertaining to the vehicle and the courtyard into a three-dimensional grid that would become a house in Silver Lake, California. The surfaces are constructed from the grid (not to represent the grid) so that any plan or section of the house would also have an elegant composition in the style of the original drawing. The sweeping outer wall acts as a porch, privacy wall, driveway and carport; and wraps the site in towards the reservoir and neighboring VDL house.

    erin LANI: This thesis is an exploration of graffiti techniques as they may be applied to architecture and the architectural design process.

More recent and complex graffiti is the inspiration, exemplified in the work of RIME (Los Angeles) and DAIM (Germany).

    cambridge MASSACHUSETTS

    Edinburgh, Scotland, June 25th, 2012—Skylar Tibbits, Arthur Olson and Autodesk Research have exhibited the BioMolecular Self-Assembly project at the 2012 TEDGlobal Conference in Edinburgh, Scotland. Participants at TEDGlobal each received a unique glass flask containing anywhere from 4 to 12 red, black or white parts. When the glass flask is shaken randomly the independent parts find each other and self-assemble various molecular structures. The flasks contain a custom tag that identifies the type of molecular structure and the ingredients for successful self-assembly.
