"The last weeks of work culminated in the final review...Some projects approched the problem by creating an allover connected architectural entity. Other approaches included the dissolving of mass in fibrous entities, and the creation of cellular aggregations."

Call for Submissions:
"This call for submissions has been initiated to promote the use and continued advance study of scripting techniques as well as to acquaint the public with the design possibilities of scripting. This call for submissions seeks projects that demonstrate experimentation with scripting techniques. Submissions should demonstrate the limitless capabilities of algorithmic techniques in architectural design. Participants are required to design using 3D modeling software." via www.fuelcollection.com/script/ine

late submission will be accepted up to the 13th of August 07

"Taking inspiration from complex natural geometries such as flower petals and leaves, the three parasols overlap to create the pavilion's complex symmetry - interweaving all-the-while without touching, allowing air, light and sound to travel through narrow gaps. The result is a space that feels both open and enclosed."

Reading the post of Marc Fornes from TheVeryMany and the development of the Voronoi 3d with the software qhull, i remembered I had realized a simple and fast tutorial for the creation of the cells of Voronoi in the three-dimensional space, with the help ofAndrea and PierPaolo.

The competition is now closed, and the 5th of july we'll discover the winner, and at the same time it will be opened the work's exposition, with all of the sent's works!

Come to visit it at Valentine's Castle, Faculty of Architecture, Turin.

"It’s just as well that Margaret Dewhurst, winner of this year’s Ar
chitectural Association student summer pavilion contest, has long hair. If she had cropped her long, flowing locks, she might not have had the inspiration for her project.

Dewhurst’s concept for the pavilion, entitled Bad Hair, was inspired partly by the sensation of wet hair drying over her face. “The aim was to create a similar visual effect, and it has since morphed into the Bad Hair pavilion, made of glue-laminated strands that crisscross over a sphere and sweep to the floor to enclose the passer-by in a shadowy tangle,” says the 19-year-old architecture student. The 4.3m-tall by 17m-wide pavilion will be vaguely reminiscent of a wig turned upside down, although the apparent “mess” of tangled wet strands belies an inherently ordered and logical sequence of design and construction."
