RC4 in London researches computational design methodologies for large-scale 3D printing with industrial robots, taking logistical, structural and material constraints as design opportunities to generate non-representational architectural spaces with extreme information density.
An abstract representation of this landscape is created from a matrix of 529 acrylic pipes piercing the ceiling between the first and the second floor, creating organic rock-like formations on the first floor reflected as an ocean surface on the second.
Minibuilders is a research project comprised of a family of small-scale construction robots designed to perform diverse tasks, linked to the different phases of construction, finally working together as a family towards the implementation of a single structural outcome.
Constructed by Jacqueline Kiyomi Gordon within San Francisco’s Yerba Buena Center for the Arts (YBCA) new exhibition series Control: Technology in Culture, It Only Happens All of the Time is an installation that shapes sound, movement, and perception.
425 hanging pendants located in the new HQ of the Center for Strategic and International Studies visualise global data.
Through generative fabrication and computational design, this project aims to reconnect digital and physical contexts through a custom designed “chronomorphologic modeling” environment.
Created by London based experimental architecture and design studio Minimaforms, this project is speculative life-like robotic environment that raises questions of how future environments could actively enable new forms of communication with the everyday.
Created by Pablo Valbuena, Time Tilings are four site-specific interventions that explore the overlap of the physical and the virtual, the generation of mental spaces by the observer, the dissolution of the boundaries between real and perceived.
Project explores the relationship between digital and biological fabrication by using silk threads laid down by a CNC machine followed by a swarm of 6,500 silkworms spinning flat non-woven silk patches.
Created by Charlie Behrens, this short film is intended to encourage a creative audience to seek out Kevin Slavin’s talk “Those Algorithms Which Govern Our Lives”. It employs an effect which takes place in Google Earth when its 3D street photography and 2D satellite imagery don’t register correctly.
Created by Seoul based media arts group Jonpasang, Hyper-Matrix is an installation created for the Hyundai Motor Group Exhibition Pavilion in Korea, the 2012 Yeosu EXPO site. The installation comprises a specially made steel construction to support thousands of stepper motors that control 300x300mm cubes that project out of the internal facade of the building.
Commissioned by the Greater London Authority as part of Wonder series that are celebrating Olympics and Paralympics, Bloom is designed and developed by Alisa Andrasek and Jose Sanchez from The Bartlett School of Architecture at UCL. Designed in neon pink (the official Olympics color), Bloom is conceptualized as an urban toy that seeks the engagement of […]
