The 2013 Seattle AIA Honor Awards took place on November 4th and the Octahedron made another appearance, this time in the lobby of Benaroya Hall. The outer surface of the […]
We enjoy sharing the research and ideas we’re exploring on this blog, but we’ve been trying to find other opportunities to share the things we’re interested in, especially with people who are not necessarily computational designers. Early in the summer, we approached the committee in charge of the Seattle Design Festival and asked if we could contribute something to the September event, though at the time we weren’t quite sure what that something was. After a few months of brainstorming, painting, cutting, and hammering we were able to successfully install our Octahedron Pavilion in Pioneer Square for the weekend. It was a great event and the weather cooperated for the most part.
For the past month or so we’ve been working on designing and fabricating a small pavilion for the 2013 Seattle Design Festival. It’s been a fun opportunity to explore a […]
The Annual Seattle Architecture Foundation Model Exhibit opens this week and our sectional model and mockup for the University of Iowa School of Music Suspended Theatroacoustic System will be on display. Opening […]
We’re currently assisting David T. Bradley at Vassar College with his research into acoustic scattering and will be sharing some of the process and results of that research here on our blog. This collaboration came about after David saw some of the visualizations (1,2) we were producing in an effort for us to better understand how diffusive geometry might perform by simulating the behavior of sound with ray-tracing.
We made a visit to SF for the 2013 KA Connect conference and managed to stop by Kreysler & Associates, and PATH while we were there.
We’ve started exploring ways of casting some of the pieces that we previously showed in the post on Acoustic Reflection Patterns and thought we’d share what’s been done so far. The diffusive […]
We learned today that we won three awards in the 2013 A+ Architizer Awards; a Jury Award for Modeling, and the Popular Choice Awards for Modeling and Fabrication.
The mockup for the Lobby Feature Wall of the Tobin Center for the Performing Arts is under construction. This post shares some images and a bit about the process that got us to this point.
Space frames are an amazing type of structural system, but they’re often composed of hundreds or thousands of parts. We’re exploring a version of a space frame structure that has a drastically reduced number of pieces that are constructed with a minimal amount of material waste. The hope is that we can find more use for space frames besides long span structures.
