Edible Infrastructure- Darrick Borowski, Jeroen Janssen, Nikoletta Poulimeni

Check out this project from a few students at The AA.  Done as part of an emergent technologies class, the few students created a new neighborhood, computational derived from the need for space and sustainability.  Although we would have liked to see some of the more important buildings have a more thorough design, the importance is in the larger scale of the urban fabric that is created.

A Cultural Interchange – University of Nottingham – Ji Soo Han

A look at the place of computational design in the process of form creation. Ji Soo Han uses multiple mathematical formulas to create the form of this project.  Does this process of creation (identifying variables, running some scripts, taking produced form and creating enclosure) marginalize the role of an architect in the design process?

BUILDSMART 2011 – R.P.I./Politecnico Di Torino

Today we’re gonna do something a little different, and a little light in terms of content, but we think you’ll like it. Here’s a series of videos from the currently in progress studio from RPI and Politecnico di Torino students, in Italy.  Creating architectural components, and using arduino controllers, the students create pieces that react to given variables.  See some of the process videos next!
