    Yong Ha KIM: Biological growth operates as a catalyst in order to create an animate geometry. This catalyst gives a repeated stimulus to the fundamental processes in architecture—that is, the process from particle to line; from line to surface; from surface to line; from line to particle; from particle to surface—which happen sequentially over time as the biological growth in nature.

  • Phýllon
    vienna AUSTRIA

    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.

    Nikolay Hristov IVANOV: The project titled ”Phýllon” is a lamp design that is inspired by the complexity of the leaf’s venation. A novel process that employs computer simulation is used to generate a design that operates close to a micro-scale. It started as a research design-investigation based on the distribution of the veins of a single leaf blade. The goal was not to mimic the leaf’s pattern of veins, but rather to have a new reading towards it using a speculative data set and reconnecting within certain logic—establish direct connections—more like covered with a spider net, creating complexity via the quantity of the elements, rather than the elements themselves. Via exploring a numerous configurations of points and diverse connection logics of growth, it crystallized as extremely fragile, elegant or even precious single object design.

  • BioMolecular Self-Assembly
    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.

    david REEVES: For the speculative development of several temporary large-scale pavilion structures at London’s Olympic Park, the project sets out to leverage the organizational potential of distributed intelligence. Treating the existing site as a field of nodal destinations, the pavilions are collectively conceived of as an interstitial tissue—materializing along potential high traffic routes between venues.
