    2012 Digital Architecture Laboratory Summer Workshop: Articulated Surface

    The summer workshop 2012 of the “Digital Architecture Laboratory” (DAL) chose the atrium of the School of Architecture of Hunan University, Changsha, to set the general framework for an installation which catalyses the potential of articulated surfaces. Students of nine groups were briefed to propose a design that activates the unemployed atrium space. After having analyzed the current deficiencies of the atrium, a series of 1:1 scale design mock-ups helped the groups to adjust and refine their design proposals as well as encouraged them to consider befitting materials at the early stage of the design.

Fearing their power, Zeus split them into 2 separate parts, condemning them to spend their lives in search of their other halves”—Plato’s The Symposium.
