after the final review,we ve kicked off a new international workshop on algorithmic design,which is an attached project of the
international symposium on algorithmic design for architecture and urban designALGODE TOKYO 2011 in 14-16 march in tokyo.
and in mid feb,we ll start a new studio project jointed by tokyo university(prof.kengo kuma&prof.yusuke obuchi),princeton university(prof.jesse reiser) and columbia university(prof.nanako umemoto), called Prototyping Architecture - Design research project on evolutionary processes and life cycles for new ecological paradigm.
here are some physical models and pics from the final review,also the posters of the international workshop and the new studio project:
some guys were not there as they were too tired...
