Cybernetic Assemblages in Chicago, Illinois by Nikita Troufanov

Friday, December 7th, 2012

Article source: Nikita Troufanov

CYBORGS

The proposed Dance Center explores the idea of superimposition and cybernetic assemblages. By combining and overlaying organic, natural, smooth systems with machine-like, synthetic, rigid ones, a deeper experience of architectural space is achieved. Cyborg as an idea and image has informed much of the process where new nature, transformation and time are central themes. Through exploitation of cyborg vocabulary such as plug-ins, prosthetics, new skins and add-ons an architectural Cyborg is developed.

Article source: Marshall Moya Design

The design of Mann Elementary School was conceptualized with a vision to unite indoor and outdoor learning spaces, and to centralize the collaboration of students. The heart of the school is layered with “green” spaces that foster sustainable urban gardening and promote nature-filled learning. The indoor and outdoor structures are intertwined with lush green spaces and botanical gardens that allow students to learn not only in their classrooms, but also outside, fostering curiosity, learning, and discovery.

Nautilus Studio in Redmond, Washington by Calico Studio

Article source: Calico Studio

Most artists if pressed could produce their work in a bathroom, adapting to their means. Our client wanted a space that would call her to create, while providing a visual connection to her family that could easily be broken and reestablished. We found inspiration in the spirals of the nautilus, sweeping from the main house the studio is tucked in between existing site constraints.
