Books

This morning when I arrived at HDA I found a lot of interesting books on my table selected by Sébastien Perrault, Mitsu Edwards and other collaborators of the team. At the office these books are used as reference and source of inspiration. They might be helpful to some of our readers so here is a quick presentation with a full online versions of 2 of them.

You can find more references on the reading list of HDA on tumblr:

As HDA often works with glass and light steel structures, transparency has always been a central point of interest in our design process.
We share today the paper and its related presentation given by Hugh Dutton on 30th September 2010 in Dusseldorf, at  Engineered Transparency international conference.

We are happy to post our first entry of our new DOWNLOADS category.
Like a small but growing number of other architecture offices (such as Ecosistema Urbano and Arquitextonica), we believe that sharing content can be useful, productive and not anti-economic.
In other words, we believe in an Open Culture.

That’s why on this post we want to share with you in a free download format, a rhinoscript code (see video above) that we developed for a skylight design in China, which can help with understanding the concept of double and single curvature geometry.
If you are new to rhinoscript, it may help you to have a look at THEVERYMANY, where you will get a better idea of what can be achieved within this format.
