An object or a system is called chiral if it differs from its mirror image. Such objects then come in two forms, which are mirror images of each other, and these pairs of mirror image objects are called enantiomorphs (Greek opposite forms) or, when referring to molecules, enantiomers. A non-chiral object is called achiral (sometimes also amphichiral).<br><br> a|Um STUDIO:<br> Ed Keller &amp; Carla Leitao<br><br> PROJECT TEAM:<br> NEW YORK<br> _ Roland Snooks<br> _ Ezio Blasetti<br> _ Dave Pigram<br><br> LOS ANGELES<br> _ Daniel Vasini<br> _ Emiliano Espasandin<br><br> LISBON<br> _ Claudia Sisti, EXTERNA Lda.

The generation of form follows a morphological process in which geometry coded with behavioural intelligence becomes responsive to a field of influence. The project emerges from, and is the extension of a lineage of, performative design processes involving the reaction of line to field. Beginning with a universally periodic lattice the project attains specificity through its behavioural mutation and its edge conditions. The resulting project embodies characteristics marking a shift from the mechanical to the biological.<br><br> This particular lineage of performative design projects is traced through the projects of; Notre Dame Cathedral (Maurice de Sully), Sagrada Familia (Antonio Gaudi), Munich Olympic Stadium (Frei Otto) and the proposal for Beijing Olympic Pool (PTW + Arup). These projects generate form directly through various performative modeling techniques. The preoccupation of this lineage is s...</p> http://archinect.com/blog/article/21450380/alonso-s-topologicalmutation-final-review Alonso's topologicalMUTATION final review Ezio Blasetti 2005-08-09T19:55:21-04:00 >2011-11-24T09:05:52-05:00 <p>here come some pictures from our project (team 010) ;)<br><img src="http://files.archinect.com/uploads/ai/aiu_team010.JPG" alt="image" name="image"><br><img src="http://files.archinect.com/uploads/ai/aiu_team010_(1).JPG" alt="image" name="image"><br><img src="http://files.archinect.com/uploads/ai/aiu_team010-(2).jpg" alt="image" name="image"><br><img src="http://files.archinect.com/uploads/ai/aiu_team010-(3).jpg" alt="image" name="image"><br><img src="http://files.archinect.com/uploads/ai/aiu_team010-(4).jpg" alt="image" name="image"><br><img src="http://files.archinect.com/uploads/ai/aiu_title_(Custom).jpg" alt="image" name="image"></p> http://archinect.com/blog/article/21450379/eisenman-wigley-debate-on-nothing Eisenman - Wigley debate on nothing Ezio Blasetti 2005-08-09T19:40:47-04:00 >2011-11-24T09:05:52-05:00 <p>the event of the summer term of the AAD program took place in the wood auditorium last Friday 080505. Interesting conversation, once two figures like Eisenman and Wigley are in it; not so interesting that even if Eisenman would really like to answer questions, yet we didn't have the chance to ask him the whole conversation was on the last volume of &ldquo;Volume&rdquo;&#157; entitled &ldquo;Doing almost nothing&rdquo;&#157;; the conversation also turned out to be almost nothing, from my point of view I have to say that there was no actual debate: how could it be one? I would really like some comments on this debate, I hope that some of the people that were present at the debate are also reading the archinect's posts... so I'm looking forward to that.<br><img src="http://files.archinect.com/uploads/ai/aiu_eisenman.JPG" alt="image" name="image"><img src="http://files.archinect.com/uploads/ai/aiu_eisenman_(1).JPG" alt="image" name="image"></p> http://archinect.com/blog/article/21450378/previous-weeks-tiny-summary Previous Weeks’ (tiny) Summary Ezio Blasetti 2005-08-09T14:08:14-04:00 >2011-09-23T13:01:03-04:00 <p>Just to give you a clue, to have a pretext for my future posts: Summer Term started around Jun 1st; classes I registered for: Metropolis and After (Reinhold Martin), Advanced Architecture Studio (Crit: Ed Keller), Topological State of Mutation (Hernan Diaz Alonso) and Fundamentals of Digital Design. While writing this post the summer term is about to finish; we just had our final review on the Alonso's class, the final review for the Architecture Studio is coming up on the 18th and the Metropolis' final paper is due to 26 Aug. <br> My midterm paper's link for &rdquo;&tilde;Metropolis and After' is:<br><a href="http://ezioatcolumbia.blogspot.com/2005/07/paper-for-metropolis.html" target="_blank">http://ezioatcolumbia.blogspot.com/2005/07/paper-for-metropolis.html</a><br> Keller's studio, which I'm on it right now in order to have something good to present on the review next Wednesday, is about Biopower Transmutations...
