workshop at advances in architectural geometry 2018

I was invited through CORE studio to co-organize a workshop at the Advances in Architectural Geometry (AAG) conference on the theme form active structures, this year held at Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg, Sweden. Workshop 1: Form-active structures with Kangaroo/K2Engineering – AAG 2018 The workshop focused on the design and analysis of form-active structures using Kangaroo and K2Engineering. In particular, it aims at investigating the enriched … Continue reading workshop at advances in architectural geometry 2018

frixel

Frixel is a finite element analysis program that’s so easy a 5 year old could use it. Provided only a closed curve representing a building massing and location for core, Frixel generates a 2 dimensional grid and runs structural analysis on it. You can tweak grid size, gravitation magnitude and lateral wind force to see how your design perfoms under different conditions. Additionally, it can … Continue reading frixel

digital wood

Digital wood is a full-scale exhibition structure in plywood. Through investigations, full-scale experiments and digital tools this project seeks to explore new perspectives of programing timber in the field of architecture and design. In collaboration with our sponsors a temporary structure was designed and built for the “Tomorrow’s Wood Production” venue which functioned as a gathering place and visual label for visitors, while exploring new … Continue reading digital wood

onyx

Onyx is a proposal for a small scale concrete kiosk located at the Botanical garden, Gothenburg. It recreates the sharp and almost dangerous language of rock formations, yet completely friendly for human beings. Visitors may enter the kiosk during a cold winter day with hot cup of mulled wine and experience the space. Aggregated out of 121 custom made concrete blocks, the installation offers functionality … Continue reading onyx

blido

Blidö is a vertical extension of a timber frame house built in the 1950s. Rather than trying to mimic the expression of the existing structure, this project attempts to select and lift certain qualities of the original building. By incorporating details such as roof angles, roof material and corner colours, the extension communicates with the original house while still being an unexpected addition. The project … Continue reading blido

new website

I finally got around to migrate the content from my previous website plsndesigntech.com to this wordpress driven page. It feels good not having to worry about the backend and infrastructure of the site anymore. Previously everything was managed using PHP/MySQL/HTML/CSS etc, and I had to manually push new data to the DB everytime I wanted to make an update (there was no CMS whatsoever). Here … Continue reading new website
