    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.

    Kokkugia / Roland SNOOKS: The Composite Swarm installation is an architectural prototype exploring the relationship of robotic fabrication, composite materials, and algorithmic design. The complexity of the form and the excess of ornament make the prototype structurally efficient and minimize the amount of material used. . . .

    2011

    How computer technologies and digital fabrication techniques give architects unprecedented tools for crafting performance and aesthetics through cross-disciplinary collaboration. . . . Boat, airplane, and automobile design tools and software are now applied to architectural projects using robotics and high-strength, low-weight, carbon fiber composites. Greg Lynn’s studio and Mark Foster Gage’s seminar at Yale with participants Frank Gehry, Lise Ann Couture, Chris Bangle, and Greg Foley, among others generated a lively dialogue invigorating the future of design.

    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.

    Brandon HALL: This project engages with the discourse of contemporary composites through vacuum formed simulations, creating a composite surface by squishing and embedding objects, imitating thin film layers which could eventually have performative qualities such as EL lighting or thin film solar panels. This meta-assembly explores the relationship between the highly articulated figure and a faceted surface. The assembly embeds 3-D printed figures that have been clicked into the surface, pocketed to accommodate the figures.

    Born in La Jolla, California in 1970, Tom Wiscombe is a licensed architect living in Los Angeles. He is the founder of Tom Wiscombe Design, an international architecture practice. His work is known for its synthesis of form, pattern, colour and technology into singular, irreducible constructions. Wiscombe is a senior faculty member at the Southern California Institute of Architecture. He currently holds the Louis I Kahn Visiting Assistant Professorship at Yale University.
