This a remind of a previous post in French. The third edition of Advances in Architectural Geometry / AAG will be held in Paris from the 27 to 30th of September 2012. Its attraction is reinforced by the support of the Centre Pompidou. As part of the AAG2012 symposium, a video panorama of Universities and Research Laboratories experiments will be held in the Forum -1 of the Centre Pompidou Museum.READ MORE
We have previously announced on this blog the ADVANCES IN ARCHITECTURAL GEOMETRY Symposium that will be held in Paris from the 27 to 30th of September 2012 with the support of the Centre Pompidou. If you are interested in complex geometry and the relationship between forms and architecture, we invite you to have a look to the workshops of the symposium here.READ MORE
HUGH DUTTON ASSOCIATES will participate in the MONA_LISA PAVILLION WORKSHOP and will give a lecture on Monday, 21st of Mai with the title PARAMETRIC DESIGN COMPLEX GEOMETRIES NEW TECHNOLOGIES. Thanks to Politecnico di Torino and Antonio Spinelli for inviting us to this event where we will also meet Andrea Graziano, an italian parametric designer who is also a very active member casino of the parametric network on the web. You can find below a draft of our presentation and an embed of Andrea Graziano”s lecture.READ MORE

How are new design tools and software changing design of clothes and fashion accessories?
As we are always interested in exploring the boundaries of architecture and 3D design, we have found that some fashion designers may use the same softwares that we use in HDA.
Many narrow streets and alleyways off Oxford Street, London are currently misused and underdeveloped. These under regarded areas are ideal not only for improvement, but also for relatively unconventional design opportunities. Our proposal acknowledges this by providing an architectural intervention that subtly draws attention to the building through the intrigue of a sculptural façade. Inspired by the art work of Lucio Fontana large glazed areas orientated towards the sky are slashed into the façade, maximising the natural light available in this narrow street.
We often talk about relevance of network effects in our jobs: networking dynamics can be acheived both virtually and phisically. We first “met” Jon Mirtschin on his blog Geometry Gym, then we discovered he also was on twitter and finally we met him at HDA, thanks to Rhinoforyou.
We invite you readers to discover some interesting topics and posts we have selected from the Geometry Gym blog:READ MORE
