  • Ambient Exchange
    calgary CANADA

    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.

    Synthetiques & minus Architecture studio {MAS}: Libraries are increasingly the places in which culture is produced, collected and disseminated. The Ambient Exchange promotes a culture of collaboration, creative inquiry and community engagement through provision of functional and exuberant spaces that engage the strong social and craft-oriented traditions of the Finnish built environment.

  • Noise Scape II
    berlin GERMANY

    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.

    Holger LIPPMANN: The fractalScape and NoiseScape series are based on Processing code and work with Perlin noise and iteration functions. The iteration algorithm divides a shape down within a 7-9 level loop. Each repetition of the process is also called an “iteration.” The results of one iteration are used as starting point for the next iteration.

  • Symposium: Advances in Architectural Geometry
    los angeles CALIFORNIA

    The AAG symposium presents theoretical works and practices linked to new geometrical development applicable to architecture. The event aims to gather the diverse components of the contemporary architectural tendencies which push the building envelope towards free form and respond to the multiple current design challenges with a renewed mathematical rigor.

    Centre Pompidou Exhibition Symposium: Advances in Architectural Geometry at Centre Pompidou, Paris
    Featuring: Herwig Baumgartner, Hernan Diaz Alonso, Elena Manferdini, Florencia Pita, Peter Testa, and Andrew Atwood.
    Friday, 11/30
    7.00 pm / W.M. Keck Lecture Hall

  • Fresh Hills
    los angeles CALIFORNIA

    2nd Place in LAGI International Design Competition for Freshkills Park, Staten Island, New York

    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.

    M-Rad (Matthew ROSENBERG): FRESH proposal /// As we approach Fresh Hills the undulating mounds appear to be natural elements growing from the earth. The closer we get, however, it is clear this structure, like the mounds below it, are not native to the recently capped Fresh Kills landfill site. Its form rests lightly on the existing topography and creates definition across the expansive horizon. It caresses the East mound creating a seamless integration between utility scale energy harnessing and a program filled landscape. It creates a harmonious relationship between earth and wind.

  • Para-Mat!
    budapest HUNGARY

    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.

    Roland Dániel NÉMETH & Anett FARKAS: The aim of the “Para-Mat” workshop, held during the annual European Architecture Students Assembly (EASA), was to create a pavilion/object, that would instantly become a meeting point, a tool for social interaction for the inhabitants of the Spanish city of Cádiz, the host of the event in 2011. Right along the Atlantic coast of the old city lies a promenade, that already had nearby meeting points for distinct local groups, like old fishermen, couples enjoying a walk, youth having a “botellón”, or mothers with their small children. We wanted to bring these groups together to the same spot, by giving each of them something useful.

  • Adaptive Ecologies: Notes on a Computational Urbanism
    london UNITED KINGDOM

    Architecture finds itself coping with new social and cultural complexities that radically re-factor and challenge its response through latent and often unknown parameters. Distinctions between information, matter and life reveal intricacies in the speculative realties of a much deeper synthesis. This symposium will open a discussion on the role of generative and behavioural approaches within the conception and production of contemporary architecture and urbanism.

    “Adaptive Ecologies: Notes on a Computational Urbanism”
    SPYROPOULOS, SCHUMACHER, RUY, FRAZER, STUART-SMITH, DILLON, & more
    Friday, 11/30
    10.00am–6.00 pm / Lecture Hall

  • Ichneumonid: Subversive Parasitic Architecture
    vienna AUSTRIA

    University of Technology
    critic: Manfred BERTHOLD

    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.

    Herwig SCHERABON: Ichneumonid is a project about species mutation and insect morphology as an approach to architectural typology. It deals with the deconstruction and subversion of remnants from second world war. The design is based on insectoid aesthetics and entomological analysis of ichneumonidae, a parasitic wasp that affects its host by seeding eggs into the hosts body. The worms, that eclose from the eggs, break through the hosts skin and pupate on it. The architectural equivalent would be a parasitic building that grows from the inside of an existing building.

  • infObjects
    berlin GERMANY

    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.

    Johannes TSOPANIDES / SHAPES iN PLAY: InfObjects is a design concept with a new approach to combine influences from product design, generative processes and information visualisation in order to make complex data tangible. The ingredients of several dishes have been analysed regarding energy content, CO2 equivalent, and price. By using generative design tools (programmed with processing and then manufactured with 3-D printing) this information is parametrically transformed into metaphorical shapes: the CO2 is illustrated by (ozone-)holes, the energy by the growth of roots and the price by higher or lower levels within the object.
