You know that at HDA we like to share because we believe in sharing as a way to learn and design. After two month of work we are happy to officially announce DESIGN by DATA workshop, organized in partnership with IMMAGINOTECA studio and La Gâité Lyrique.READ MORE
We are releasing today our first official press-kit of the CLIMATE RIBBON™, an architectural feature designed by Hugh Dutton Associates for Swire Properties and architects Arquitectonica’s new Brickell City Centre development in Miami. The design of the CLIMATE RIBBON is a response to the climate performance parameters and the architectural form is therefore an expression of them.READ MORE
1. Blogger, researcher, artist, coder, architect…how would you describe and define your job and your projects?
“I have no special talents. I am only passionately curious.” ― Albert Einstein.
It’s hard for me to describe and define myself and my activity, especially in the last years. I would consider myself as a modern explorer, a person who really likes to imagine future possibilities (from science to philosophy, from art to biology) and to connect the acquired dots on a map (resources, people, skills, technologies, tools) to design new potential trajectories.READ MORE
“I call architecture frozen music.”
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Jan Henrik Hansen is a Zurich-based architect/artist/designer who turns (time-based) music into (space-based) physical sculptures and architectural structures. Jan is an architect with background in music and he has been teaching and researching with well-known professors Gramazio & Kohler.READ MORE
In this video Stephen Owens (Swire Properties Inc), Bernardo Fort-Brescia (Arquitectonica) and Hugh Dutton (Hugh Dutton Associates) tell the story of the design of the Brickell City Centre in Miami and especially the vision behind the CLIMATE RIBBON™, an architectural feature combining precision engineering and environmental design with an elegant sculptural form.READ MORE

If you have been recently following our activities on facebook or twitter, you may have heard about our design for the CLIMATE RIBBON™ in Miami, a project we develop for Swire Properties Ltd., with the main architects Arquitectonica and wind specialists RWDI.
The vision behind the project is now becoming reality and it’s a pleasure to share the details of the design process via this blog.
Sebastian Perrault of Hugh Dutton Associates will be one of the tutor of the 4th Parametric Design workshop taking place in Leipzig from 5th to 9th December 2013.
The workshop is an initiative of UNIVERSITY OF TECHNOLOGY, ECONOMY AND CULTURE IN LEIPZIG (HTWK) initiated in summer 2009 as “a venue for international students of architecture, engineering and design to develop techniques for generative algorithms and iterative optimisation of design solutions”.READ MORE

In orbit is the last installation of artist/architect Tomás Saraceno with whom we are working these weeks for The Paris Atelier program. Here is how he presents this work : when I look at the multilayered levels of diaphanous lines and spheres, I am reminded of models of the universe that depict the forces of gravity and planetary bodies. for me, the work visualizes the space-time continuum, the three-dimensional web of a spider, the ramifications of tissue in the brain, dark matter, or the structure of the universe. with “in orbit”, proportions enter into new relationships; human bodies become planets, molecules, or social black holes.
Dans ce blog, vous nous avez souvent entendu parler de coworking et espaces collaboratifs pour l’architecture. Mais pourquoi ce sujet est très interessant pour un atelier de design tel que Hugh Dutton Associés ? Voici un tentatif de reponse dans un texte basé sur l’article Révolution numérique et coworking : Vers une ville vaporeuse ? pour la plateforme DNArchi .
