This course focuses on the development of hybridized, folded meshes that simultaneously serve as both structure and building envelope. Students develop parametrically controlled tessellations and transform them into building component systems that can be built using conventional sheet stock materials. These tessellated systems are extracted from the digital realm and built at full scale.</p> http://archinect.com/features/article/56310866/student-works-fallen-star Student Works: Fallen Star Elif Erdine 2012-09-05T10:00:00-04:00 >2012-12-13T23:08:13-05:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/f3/f3uns05w3rd7qt6x.jpg" width="514" height="342" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p> &ldquo;Fallen Star&rdquo; is an installation set between biomimetics, interaction, and perception. It is the final working prototype of the Architectural Association (AA) DLAB Visiting School which took place in AA London and AA Hooke Park during July 23 &ndash; August 5, 2012.</p> http://archinect.com/features/article/31857259/building-between-dimensions-an-interview-with-sophia-vyzoviti Building Between Dimensions: An Interview with Sophia Vyzoviti Archinect 2012-02-27T20:00:00-05:00 >2013-05-15T12:23:26-04:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/z1/z15oq4m4gnvs422a.jpg" width="514" height="386" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p> <em>by Woody Evans</em></p> <p> Architect Sophia Vyzoviti pushes, cuts, pleats, folds, and shreds the edges of architectural design &ndash; to startling effect. I was a librarian to architecture and engineering departments at a community college for some years, and found myself often promoting her work on folding matter to CAD-dazed sophomores; it opened eyes. Her emphasis on the techniques of handling physical models and materials is refreshing in a world when so many of the Prtizker class seem to work solely in software. I interview her here about augmented reality, touching stuff, and the aesthetics of smart textures.</p> http://archinect.com/features/article/2112195/smartgeometry-2011-copenhagen-denmark SmartGeometry 2011, Copenhagen Denmark Terri Peters 2011-04-07T14:50:52-04:00 >2011-11-17T15:46:03-05:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/xe/xe2q12i1vc7lak4r.jpg" width="514" height="343" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p> SmartGeometry was established in 2001 as an international group of academics and professional architects, engineers, computer scientists and designers interested in the potentials of parametric design and computational tools. Each year, a four-day workshop precedes a conference day with invited speakers, and each year explores a different theme.&nbsp;</p>
