Here are couple inspiring pictures from our last tutorial. Students are now focusing on developing larger models. They will soon choose between submitting an installation for Buro Happold’s new HQ or the Burning Man festival.
Here are couple pictures from our last tutorials. DS10 is back with some exciting experiments, models and diagrams for Brief01:Systems. From Lorna’s spiralhedrons to Sarah’s pyritohedron, Maria’s stalagtites to Charlotte’s Jitterbug, Garis’ curved folding to Tobias’ Rheotomic surfaces, students are exploring the mathematical, natural or biological system of their choice, both with physical and digital parametric models.
We had our final crit today! Great projects concluding our brief2B:Realize. Here are couple pictures. Thank you very much to our external critiques Daewha Kang (Associate Zaha Hadid Architects), Lawrence Friesen (GenGeo), Stephen Melville (Director Ramboll UK), James Solly (Buro Happold), Michael Clarke and to our colleagues Anna Liu and Roberto Botazzi.
Our studio is back after a month of holidays. Here are couple pictures from our tutorials today. Impressive progress from our students including a 3D printed potato-based fractal civilization (Andrei Jipa), a series of recursive bamboo structures for the Durga Puja festival (Dhiren Patel), an origami roof for the fashion week (Charlotte Yates), a spiky eco-retreat to meet the Sami people (Natasha Coutts), a temple for the Burning Man festival made of reciprocal plywood components (Joe Leach), a hypar tower for the Damyang Bamboo festival (William Garforth-Bless), a Pop-Up book drop pavilion (Ieva Ciocyte), a surreal Dali Museum in the Park (Lorna Jackson), a promenade concert in Hyde Park (Sarah Shuttleworth) and many more… We are so excited by the diversity of projects this year and the clear continuity between our brief2A and brief2B. Looking forward to the final crit on Thursday 15th May!
Another great tutorial day this Thursday. Here are two projects that are materializing into beautiful models. The first project is by Sarah Shuttleworth, it is a simple folded component which drives a curved surface that is used both as furniture and shelter, the other project by Henry Turner is a series of intersecting plywood waves which create a playful landscape on which people can lounge.
Another wonderful Thursday! Here are some pictures of the day. Keep it up guys, beautiful work.
Geometric Folding Algorithms: Linkages, Origami, Polyhedra is a wonderful class by Prof. Erik Demaine at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. It is fully documented on the http://courses.csail.mit.edu website of the MIT with course notes and video. Here is a list of all his classes: http://erikdemaine.org/classes/
