    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.

    Hua HAO: In this course the students developed a computer-based approach to designing strongly articulated spaces. Those spaces should be defined containing an unseen density of information. We sought high-resolution architectures with imaginative and previously unseen space impressions.

    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.

    Stelios PSALTIS: This project belongs to a series of experiments on investigating possible mechanisms of creating patterns. The logic behind creating patterns although, has less to do with specific expressions of stylistic preferences, but rather lies upon the idea of reusing information. These examples act as visual representations, depicting the powerful capacity of programed algebraic rules to reuse information. Repeated visual units and ordered patterns, produced out of any, even random given entities.

    We are at the cusp of a revolution: we can now create machines that adapt their behaviour based on their environment and the results of their actions. The enablers for this revolution are sensing, communication, and computation technologies, and the feedback control algorithms that rule the machines. These creations will have unprecedented effects on our lives—some welcome, others not. In this talk, D’Andrea outlines how we got here, where we are going, and the consequences.

    Zurich, 2011 — Out of a collaboration between the Emergent Technologies and Design program (EmTech) of the Architectural Association, London, and the Chair of Structural Design at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH), Zurich, a temporary light timber construction has been design that functions as sun shading for parts of the grand stairs in front of the architecture department of the ETH. It is based on bending behaviour under selfweight of oversized sheets of plywood of up to 11 x 2.5 m. The design activates the material properties as the defining element in the transfer of forces.
