PARAMETRIC DESIGN

parametric design, architecture and art

La chaîne de télé ARTE a réalisé ce très beau reportage, intitulé “La main tendue”, à propos du projet pour le Nouveau Departement des Arts de L’Islam au Musée du Louvre de Paris que nous avons le plaisir de publier sur notre blog. La vidéo parcourt l’histoire du projet depuis le lancement du concours jusqu’à son ouverture en passant par les délicates problématiques de la muséographie.

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.

Germogli. This will be the name of the “pylons of the future” we are building in Italy. Do you remember the competition held by Terna we won with our design Dancing with Nature? The designer of the dancing pylons Hugh Dutton and the engineer Pierluigi Bucci from Hugh Dutton Associates were last week in Livorno (Italy) to assist to the load testing of the prototype and we share some photos and a video of this event.

Le mois dernier, invités par l’association Assaut Vert et avec la participation de la doctorante Aurélie de Boissieu de DNArchi et le professeur Claire Pétetin, nous avons tenu à l’École de Versailles une conference sur l’Architecture paramétrique et libre de droit, en abordant le sujet de l’architecture paramétrique avec des cas d’application concrète. Retrouvez ci-dessous le support de présentation de la conference en PDF et, bien sur, librement téléchargeable et réutilisable [Licence Creative Commons CC-BY-2.0]

This post is the fourth of 4 posts about Digital manufacturing (fabbing) environments that we have been publishing weekly on Fridays. In these posts I have shared my research on fab labs, open innovation and smart cities, mainly in Europe and in Spain.

The fourth post is the result of a research on fab labs and their relationship with smartcities. In the last two articles I have written about two recent nodes of the global fab lab network. Although there are other fablabs in Spain, I decided to give visibility to these two initiatives in León and in Sevilla. Among all fab labs in Spain those two are giving a real opportunity to make personal production and digital manufacturing accessible and comprehensible for a wide range of people. However, the most popular manufacturing laboratory in Spain is Fab Lab Barcelona (2008). It is settled in the IAAC – Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia and it is part of the Fab Lab Network. I would like to share my interest in their research on how the digital production ecosystem could make our cities smarter.

This post is the 3rd of 4 posts about Digital manufacturing (fabbing) environments that we are publishing weekly on Fridays. In these posts I will share my research on fab labs, open innovation and smart cities, mainly in Europe and in Spain.

The third post is a result of a research on fab labs in an academic context in Spain. Fab Lab Sevilla  was promoted in 2009 by the IND_Center  (Centro de Innovación y Diseño_IND ) of the University of Sevilla . It received the official acknowledgement from the Fab Lab Network  in August 2011. I am eager to share my interest for this node of the digital production ecosystem.
