Our friends at Living is doing some great work…check it> Living Light is a permanent outdoor pavilion in the heart of Seoul with a dynamic skin that glows and blinks in response to both data about air quality and public interest in the environment. Citizens can enter the pavilion or view it from nearby streets and buildings, and they can text message the building and it will text them back.
Columbia University-Advanced StudIo VI (Spring 2009)
Critic: Scott Marble & Assistant Critic: Ben Krone
We had the opportunity to attend Scott Marble’s review a few months ago and got a closer look at the array of digital design techniques being developed in his graduate design studio. We are featuring Katie Shima and Hyoung-Gul Kook projects from the studio. Please take the time to browse through.
We are pleased to announce the launch of the Apo Mechanes studio and workshop to be held in Athens this summer.
Apo Mechanes is an intensive 2.5 week computational design studio dedicated to furthering the techniques and concepts of computation as means for the production of spatial environments. Apo Mechanes will investigate the modes of algorithmic processes in architectural design and fabrication. Apo Mechanes is derived from “από μηχανής”, literally “from the machine”, and refers to the machinic nature of the studio in both an abstract/diagrammatic and a literal fabrication sense. It will run from the 27th of July till the 11th of August.
Selected projects from the Fall 2008 semester’s ‘Search – Advanced Algorithmic Design’ seminar, a six week intensive seminar in the visual studies sequence at the Columbia GSAPP, taught by Mark Collins & Toru Hasegawa of Proxy. The seminar examines object-oriented problem solving and visual/spatial research within the open-source platform Processing. A video of this class’ work can be seen here.
