Design Engineering Refocused by Hanif Kara, Daniel Bosia

By Hanif Kara, Daniel Bosia

The contents of the publication will spotlight the variations among the layout and engineering disciplines – strengths and flaws. it is going to additionally illustrate examples of interdisciplinary interactions. Any fake dichotomies could be published and the various non-linear procedures borne out of tough conventions among conventional and new modes of perform can be printed. initiatives in accordance with a physique of expertise spanning decades may be chosen to help experimentation that is going past an undisciplined look for originality, innovation and creativity. as well as writings from Hanif Kara and Daniel Bosia contributions may be sought from experts within the box who've performed a task within the operations of® at AKT II – prior and current – qualifying them to disseminate and distribute a specific kind of ‘knowledge’.

  • Features paintings of architectural practices: Adjaye affiliates, Foster + companions, Heatherwick Studio, HOK, Serie Architects, Wilkinson Eyre Architects and Zaha Hadid Architects.
  • In addition to AKT II, it's going to surround the paintings of engineers and engineering experts equivalent to: Arup, Cecil Balmond, Buckminster Fuller, Buro Happold, Pier Luigi Nervi and Peter Rice.

The Great Court renovation at the British Museum remains a strong example of a contribution to an evolving computational craftwork to solve modern incarnations of formal complexity. Nevertheless, as is the case in architecture, each instance exposes specific nuances that must be addressed, so custom details inevitably emerge in every project that involves tessellating curved glass surfaces. Hence the beauty of Legendre’s continuous mathematical function differentiated into the limits of steel tubes, glass panes, aluminium mullions, rubber gaskets and silicone caulking; after all, discrete components need analogue bindings.

They don’t need to be celebrated as ‘special’ or ‘new’ any more, because those methods 2 DIGITAL TO POST-DIGITAL 36-37 5 5 UNStudio, Arnhem Centraal station, Arnhem, the Netherlands, 1998. Catmull–Clark algorithm of the geometry. Borrowed from computer graphics, this mathematical subdivision algorithm was used to of design are inherent in all of a new generation of buildings we are designing and constructing. It is not only ‘special’ buildings that benefit from these tools and processes, but all of them to a greater or lesser extent.

When observing the massive revolutions that this fairly recent digital phenomenon has fuelled across all aspects of human existence, architects and engineers can’t be blamed for being similarly seduced. It has, without question, changed the nature of both the art and practice, but even bigger changes lurk in the continuous threshold of grey area between 0 and 1. We have become so digital, that we’re going analogue. Quantum computers, essentially analogue machines that specialise in manipulating quantum particles and asking them in which state they are likely to be found, offer a path to simulate physical reality using physical reality.
