As a development of ongoing research, architects Pablo Zamorano and Jacob Bek, and designer Nacho Marti in collaboration with the Emergent Technologies & Design Research Programme at the Architecutural Assoiciaiton, are exhibiting an exciting new experiment in pushing the boundaries of a highly efficient and sustainable fabrication process of a standard natural sheet material. The design manifested into an exhibition and meeting room pavilion that explores complex geometries generated by simple cut patterning in sheets.

The project of an environmental enhancer for the Nogara mare highway in Veneto (Italy) provides the unique chance to bring together ecological thinking, host interaction and active materials. Its location (an open country planar area among cultivated fields) enucleates as critical variables the impact of pollutants and the phenomenon of dazzling.

TRILUX is an experimental pavilion constructed out of three vertical wooden lattice structures. It creates an illuminated beacon anchoring the corner of the site and inviting the neighborhood to participate in the museum activities that take place inside it. TRILUX is fabricated by combining traditional steam-bending techniques with CNC milled and laser cut components. The south faces of TRILUX host hundreds of curved spiked shade quills. Visitors view the sky through three unique woven oculi and in the evening lights illuminate the interior lattices.

Matadero Madrid’s elevated water tower is a singular work: a concrete structure standing 25 meters high and 14 in diameter, located on the southern edge of the new contemporary creation space. The tower, which originally was surrounded by small garden pavilions for workers at the complex, now rests on a lot that has functioned in recent years as a makeshift parking zone and a space for stock and support of artistic activities. This earth-covered area, in which some of the plant species that inhabited the gardens still survive, will, in the near future, cover an underground transport hub and be transformed into a paved plaza providing access to the cultural facility.

Thinking about a modular, quickly deploy- able and adaptable bridge design a quite complex shape based on parametric design strategies and digital fabrication methods was developed. We started to parametrize points in X, Y and Z direction at relevant areas of a bridge in Rhino Grasshopper. Four points at the beginning and the end of the bridge and four in the middle. These 12 parametrized points give the opportunity to steer the crosssection of the bridge at three important areas. Based on these points the defi nition creates three frames one for each end of the bridge and one in the middle.

Busan is one of the most important Korean cities and its largest port. The project is located in the newly developed area of north port. We wanted to create an Icon. A monument that would shift the vision of the locals and international visitors alike and create new experiences for each visitor while on the same time is welcoming and inviting. And can be the city’s vision of future development.

(RE)Configured-Assemblage is a developmental landmark proposal composed of reconfigured traces of shipping containers, through diligently reconnecting, revitalising, and humanizing the accessibility of the City of Long Beach, Long Beach Blvd and Broadway Area. Through proposing three types of innovatively reconstructed modular shipping containers, the overall construct leads to open courtyards, interlocking units, and playfully generated programs that introduce a new innovative topological design that regenerates and reconnects the community.

Our proposal for the historic Pushkinsky Theater creates a programmatic envelope for the existing volume that expands the territory of the theater into a series of enfolded layers and surfaces that connect the building enclosure to the plinth on which it resides and out onto the landscape of Pushkin Square itself. The shifting angles of the new envelope knit together the two axes in the public space of the square: the building’s frontal alignment with the park, fountain and Pushkin statue and its diagonal relationship to the Boulevard Ring angling away from it.
