WF workshops are part of the Spontaneous Schooling Exhibition in London

16 06 2010

6 workshops conducted to date by Workshops Factory in Poland and in USA will be featured on Spontaneous Schooling Exhibition in London. The exhibition is curated by Nous gallery as part of the London Festival of Architecture 2010.

Thanks to the courtesy of Faculty of Architecture, Warsaw University of Technology the exhibition will feature 3d printed models of students’ works from our very fist workshop, wf_091 conducted at the WAPW in Warsaw. Below are some photos of the models currently travelling to London.

The exhibition opens Friday 18 of June 2010 at 6pm.

The venue is: 3.01 Tea Building, 5 – 13 Bethnal Green Road, London E1 6JJ.

2D pattern

15 06 2010

This is one of the patterns I designed when I was working for Gage/Clemencau Architects. The idea was to achieve the impression of a three dimensional image on a 2D surface. See more pictures at thispointon

Protospace 3.0 Mock-up

7 06 2010

The video presents process of assembling Protospace 3.0 mock-up. The projet was done during msc 2 Hyperbody studio class at the TU Delft (in collaboration with ONL).
WF’s Agata Kycia and Krzysztof Gornicki were involved in 3D modelling and creating generative procedure for the design. The project was developed in Rhinoceros, using rhinoscript.
Later on projet was continued in the Hyperbody Research Group mainly by Owen Slootweg and Jelle Feringa. Presented prototype is located in a new Protospace Laboratory at TU Delft.

The purpose of the project was to explore new possiblities in 3d modeling and digital fabrication techniques. Thus pavilion the form of the pavilion was scripted using Rhinoscript and later on all the generated components were hot wired out of EPS foam. Next each one of them was coated to make it waterproof and fully structural. There are also some wooden elements embedded inside them to reinforce floor of the pavilion.
More information about the project you can find here: posts presenting process of generating Protospace 3.0 form and publication about it.
