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
From Wednesday to Sunday we were in Turin to coordinate one of the group of international Smart Building Workshop.
In this post we share the proposal developed by the participants of our group: we have called the project RESPONSIVE PARAMETRIC INFRASTRUCTURE.
Thank you very much to the city of Turin for inviting HDA, and thanks also to the whole organization team for the great work of coordination. Thanks also to the partners of the event and, above all, thanks to Federico Borello, Grazia Carioscia, Aurelio David, Chiara Rizzi, Giuseppe Roccasalva, Antonio Spinelli, Edoardo Trossero for working so hard for the project.READ MORE
Surfing on the Internet this week I found Daniel Davis blog Digital Morphogenesis. I bumped into his last post HTML5 & WebGL where he introduces us to WebGL and its importance for CAD modeling. I am not an expert on these topics and Daniel’s article really helped me to understand what’s going on so I am going to share it with you.
Using a browser that supports WebGL means that “users don’t need to download or install any additional plugins to view 3d content”. 3d models are now viewable on the Internet and we are able to generate a model, modify it and design it on the cloud. Have a look at shapesmith, 3dtin or tinkercad.READ MORE

NEW DATES FOR TAC 1st EDITION >
from 4th April 2011 until 9 july 2011 / Deadline for admissions: 14th March 2011
MORE UPDATED INFO >
We are happy to present the project TAC: Technically Advanced Construction, an exciting postgraduate education program at Politecnico di Milano. Some contacts of our network are participating in the project, such as Andrea Graziano, Lan Live Architecture Network and Luca Dal Cerro (Decode)READ MORE
The conference is based on the previous HDA”s lecture at Ecole d”Architecture de Paris La Villette, and it will include presentation of examples like Terna”s Electric Pylons ( designed by HDA | Hugh Dutton Associés) and parametric research for the Air Tree project, designed by Ecosistema Urbano for the Expo of Shangai.READ MORE
Recently we have been often asked “What is Parametric Design and Architecture?”
Even if we are daily working with this notions, the answer is not so easy.
We”ll now start thinking about how we designers and architecture could give a comprehensive defintion of such concepts.
Comme nous avions déjà dit, aujourd’hui 25 mars nous présentons à l’Ecole d’Architecture de La Villette la conférence “Vers une architecture paramétrique”, en collaboration avec Rhinoforyou.
Hugh Dutton fera une introduction de l’agence et nous allons ensuite intervenir pour aller plus dans le spécifique de la conception architecturale. Nous allons d’ailleurs nommé le prof. Jacques Famery dont nous avons dejà publié un entretien.
Voici les supports de notre présentation.
