Jason Payne Rawhide Gallery

Eric Owen Moss hosts a discussion with Jason Payne on his installation “Rawhide: The New Shingle Style” in the SCI-Arc gallery. The conversation covers the dualities of material and metaphor, object and text, digital and analog. The audience joins the discussion at the end.

The gallery discussion concludes with a series of audience contributions. Topics include the relationship of the project to parametricism and the shingles as material, organizational system, and signifier. Payne affirms his interest in the uncomfortable friction between the material and metaphorical.

Hernan Diaz Alonso introduces the panelists. Achim Menges discusses his research in design computing synthesized with physical materialization. By embedding the physical properties of a material into generative design codes, and linking that to the possibilities and constraints of contemporary manufacturing processes, Menges demonstrates the efficiencies and performative advantages of wood as compared to composites.


Material Beyond Materials Panel 2 Synthesizing Behavior

Achim Menges discusses his research in design computing synthesized with physical materialization. By embedding the physical properties of a material into generative design codes, and linking that to the possibilities and constraints of contemporary manufacturing processes, Menges demonstrates the efficiencies and performative advantages of wood as compared to composites. Andreas Froech of Machineous discusses his company’s use of automotive robots in the digital fabrication of architecture and furniture. Froech presents multiple projects including several with Greg Lynn, and two SCI-Arc Gallery installations with Patrick Tighe and Hitoshi Abe. Bill Kreysler of Kreysler & Associates discusses his use of composites and fibre-reinforced plastic (FRP) in the production of lightweight elements for architecture and art. Kreysler describes projects for the Davies Symphony Hall, artist Claes Oldenburg, the film Minority Report, and Lawrence Argent’s Blue Bear sculpture in Denver.

Fostering direct exchange between architects and companies invested in the field of advanced materials and fabrication technologies, SCI-Arc hosts Material beyond Materials: A Composite Tectonics Conference on Advanced Materials and Digital Manufacturing. Panel 2 consists of Moderator Hernan Diaz Alonso, and Presenters Achim Menghes, Andreas Froech, and Bill Kreysler. The topic for Panel 2 is Synthesizing Behavior with a focus on digital fabrication, and the new possibilities for innovation enabled by designing and altering material at the level of matter.

Paolo Cascone Eco_Logic Design

February 16, 2011 | Video Lecturer:
Introduction by:

Paolo Cascone of COdesignLab talks about using environmental variables as drivers for the design process. He discusses several projects including “Urban Ecologies: towards a performative urbanism,” and two office buildings designed through “performative testing.” He discusses his research on African vernacular construction methods, and how they can inform a new architectural paradigm incorporating high-tech design with low-tech construction methods.
