2014 End of Year Portfolio Review

Our WeWantToLearn.net students have submitted their final portfolios! After an inspiring day going through the projects, we gave them a final mark with the help of the other tutors from the University of Westminster. Below is a selection of the inspiring work that was submitted.

The projects range from a temple at the Burning Man Festival made of an unprecedented reciprocal structure (Joe Leach) to a 3D printed city based on a fractal algorithm and built using potato starch-based plastic grown by the inhabitants of Solanopolis (Andrei Jipa) all the way to a Pop-Up plywood mosque for Trafalgar Square (Josh Haywood) and a lace tent for the London Burlesque Festival (Georgia Collard-Watson) as well as a Kabbalah Centre in the City made from large spiralohedron (Jessica Beagleman), our students have explored a new kind of joyful and spiritual Architecture using the latest digital design and fabrication technique.

    Greetings from Hong Kong!
    Wonderful examples of cosmomimetic, optimal, analogical design.
    Great to see exemplars for the Asynsis principle are kicking in at my Westminster DipArch alma mater where it all began.
    Here’s our latest updates on the initial breakthrough AD article, now in association with the Constructal Design in Nature team:

    (Good) Form follows (True) Flow.
