parametric design, architecture and art

Andrea Graziano

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.

 “We are moving to a future where the factory is everywhere and the design team is everyone.”  Alastair Parvin

It’s been almost a month since the first OUI SHARE FEST took place in Paris. It was a really interesting 3 days festival entirely dedicated to collaborative economy aiming to spread the knowledge and grow the global community of citizens, designers, makers, economists, politicians etc.

Along with well-known speakers, institutions and organizations, there was a collective of designer (or better a community) that truly couldn’t miss the appointment. And to be honest, they were the main reason to me for being there. If you are readers of this blog, you probably already know them. I’m talking about the World’s biggest design team, the WikiHouse platform.

Let me just spend few words to introduce them. “WikiHouse is an open source construction set. Its aim is to allow anyone to design, download, and ‘print’ CNC-milled houses and components, which can be assembled with minimal formal skill or training”. It is a non-profit project that adopts an inclusive approach and grows through the collaborative efforts of a community in an open-source culture.

lighter than air / READ MORE

Thanks to our friend Andrea Graziano we’ve been informed of this exciting summer course in Paris presented by Columbia University’s Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation. The Paris Atelier – Architect as Critical Maker course with the motto “Lighter than air”  will be held in Paris from June 3 until  July 15, 2013 with visiting artist Tomas Saraceno. If you are a reader of this blog, you probably know that we are very interested in the artist’s work who is famous to push the conventions of art and architecture and their capacities to invoke inventive solutions to complex questions about how we inhabit and coexist in the world.

Le nouveau département des Arts de l’Islam, dernier-né des départements du musée du Louvre en chantier à Paris depuis 2008, ouvrira ses portes à la fin de septembre 2012. C’est avec grande émotion que nous célébrons la conclusion de ce chantier exceptionnel qui nous a absorbé pendant 4 ans et nous en profitons pour signaler la mise en place d’un mini-site web dédié à ce projet: louvre.fr/le-nouveau-departement-des-arts-de-l-islam .
