Centro, designed by Ten Arquitectos, is an extension of an educational center focusing on better equipped and specialized facilities. With space to receive more than 2,500 students, CENTRO’s new architectural program was integrated from volumes between laces, at whose intersection a floating structure is created that houses a media library and functions as a bridge between two of the complex’s buildings. In addition to the media library, the program consists of an auditorium with capacity for 360 people, administrative offices, workshops, classrooms, underground parking, a film forum and specialized areas of industrial design, editing and photography.
In this session of the workshop – Introduction to Computational Design, focused on learning to create a panel from a voronoi pattern using Grasshopper.
Ten Arquitectos is an architectural firm established by Enrique Norten with various cultural, residential, hotels & infrastructure projects. With offices in México City, New York and Miami the design work is always made with a global perspective and an international sensibility. This binational approach has attracted projects from different places of the world, including the Guggenheim Museum of Guadalajara, the New York Public Library, the National Theater School of México City and the Rutgers Business School.
In this session of the workshop – Introduction to Computational Design, focused on learning more about Grasshopper. The task focused on to create a pattern by scaling the geometries in ascending or descending order from a point or a curve. The method is called point attractor.
Evergreen School, designed by Caukin Studio, is an educational center that takes inspiration from the local vernacular. Working in partnership with the charity Mothers Of Africa (MoA), CAUKIN Studio spent 3 months in rural Zambia constructing 4 classrooms and a teacher’s office for Evergreen School. Each block of two classrooms is offset to create a layered facade adding interest and breaking up the masses.
In this session of the workshop – Introduction to Computational Design focused on getting familiar with the basic components and their functioning in Grasshopper.
Putthamonthon House, designed by the architectural firm Archimontage Design Fields Sophisticated, is a residence in the suburb of Bangkok. The design for this compatible structure must consider functional space as much as aesthetic quality of combining the requirement for building house and factory. This building is connected to the A-shape building by a big bedroom on the second floor above the veranda, which fully benefits from natural light and wind. The position of the bedroom also conforms to the traditional belief about stability..
Tresno, designed by the architectural firm Realrich Architecture Workshop, is a simple tropical house in Jakarta. It’s designed by the Geomancy principle creating 9 squares of the grid which forbids and allows some functions in the zoning. The landscape of “The Pucuk Merah trees” functions as barrier sunlight, and creating a microclimate in the periphery of the site providing microclimate. The learning curve of understanding the basic needs of grids, modules, and atrium functions are key aspects.
In this session of the workshop – Introduction to Computational Design focused on designing a furniture using Rhino. The participants were asked to try forms and details which otherwise would have been difficult if they were using any other software.
Monteblanco 26, designed by Warm Architects, is a residence that creates a space that creates a sensation of awe. An awe that is expressed in the walls and openings, in the cream and white toned facades, through the purity of nothingness that adorns it. The house is a singular block horizontally and vertically perforated various times to convey an appearance of the primary element that it constitutes, the leitmotif of the architecture’s composition: (the void, the aperture, the gap, the space, the slit, the perforation, the break) in the walls and roof, that is to say, the windows.
Warm Architects is a multidisciplinary firm focused on architecture and interior design and based in Cancun, Mexico.
Yaquero House, designed by the architectural firm La Erreria, takes advantage of the old structure to make a new duplex and a penthouse. The team started the project on the first floor, here the day area was designed as an open and flexible space. The rest was built using light, which aims to reach all parts of the house in order to create a friendly and welcoming space.
Selected Academic Projects
House of Flying Beds, designed by the architectural firm Al Borde, is a refurbishment with strategic changes to keep its heritage alive. In this house for all, the private space is reduced to the bed of each one of the members of the family. The project demands a new roof, so we take advantage of this action and solve the bedrooms too. A new upper bond beam connects the walls. Over it, eucalyptus trusses were installed each meter and fifty-five centimeters. Between each truss there is a bed, in total three pairs of habitable trusses were assembled.
Al Borde, an Ecuadorian architecture firm founded in 2007 by Pascual Gangotena, David Barragán, Marialuisa Borja and Esteban Benavides.
Tiwanon House, designed by the architectural firm Archimontage Design Fields Sophisticated, is a villa ready for truly living in Bangkok. Highlighted in the House, there are long distances before entering the House. To front yard will be seen from this area first. The House is divided into general usage areas on the ground floor, including a living room, high ceiling dining room that we can see in the garden court in the middle of the House, a working room, and a bedroom.
This workshop session – Introduction to Computational Design- introduced Rhino covering basic tools required for 3d modeling, followed by a demonstration.
Archimontage Design Fields Sophisticated is an architecture and interior design studio established by Mr. Cherngchai Riawruangsangkul. The practice focuses on seeking a new trial , as well as across disciplines to design a process that can produce but challenging, questioning and finding out the meaning of architecture.
Casa Dos Codogos, designed by the architectural firm mf+arquitetos, is a residence distinguished by the visual impact of proposed volumes. It cooperates functionally with details of comfort and efficiency of the house. In addition to influencing the volumetric conceptualization of the project, a cobogo-lined face marks the entry with double straight foot that includes the cantilevered mezzanine. The furniture with pieces of great national designs reinforces the purity of the straight lines present in the architecture.
Khaneye Hayatdar, designed by 4 Architecture Studio, is a residence with a brief of finding a home with the atmosphere of a childhood house. The pattern of the bricks was used as a way to enter the light without worrying about the privacy of the neighboring houses. Also, the window protectors became an element for facade design, which made the facade more dynamic and created a nice play and variation for the facade.
Althan Twin House, designed by the architectural firm studio ii, is a residence Placed on a narrow site with blank walls on both sides. The site is surrounded by dense neighborhood, this ‘Gala’ required that it can still breathe while remaining introvert. A thin sliver becomes an ‘outdoor’ place inside the house bringing in light, air and green. All major functions of the house expand into this sliver courtyard. The house becomes a study in how one can create space which expands internally despite of limited means and possibilities.
Hive Mind Eden Project, designed by Caukin Studio, is a Sculptural Pavilion to House Observation Beehive at Eden Project. Constructed from reclaimed scaffolding poles, the pavilion acts as a sculptural beacon to draw in visitors to view the 25,000 bees that live within – soon to increase to 50,000 by next summer. The Eden Project, a popular visitor attraction in Cornwall, England houses many plants from diverse climates and environments.
Castanos House, designed by Arch Ekaterina Künzel + Arch María Belén García Bottazzini, is designed for a plot inside a gated community. The project strategy consisted on breaking down the total volume of the house, in a way that none of the façades would express the total height of the building, to avoid showing a robust object. The ground floor would host little covered surface, so the team decided to lay it in such a way that it became visually open and free, with a predominant volume above it.
With their designs, Ekaterina Künzel and Mara Belén Garcia Bottazzini aim to create timeless spaces and objects. They are passionate about imagining spaces in close relationship with nature. Generate permeable architectures so that the exterior enters the interior spaces in different ways and in different measures. We like spaces that present contrasts and subtleties. They are interested in thinking of an architecture that involves all the senses. They care about the sensations, the textures, the experiences that the spaces transmit.
Inside Out House, designed by the architectural firm GRCA, is a residence that locates itself at the intersection between romantic & brutal. Sitting heavily on the site with the visual of a large brutal structure, the external walls of the Inside Out House go right out to enclose a ‘world’ inside. The large white volume is punctuated by indecipherable bands of bricks and raw concrete snaking around this monolith. It holds true to its promises, but it takes cognisance that the grains of these dreams, align with the idea of the city itself they escape. All pointing towards the same vanishing point.
