Printing Architecture: Michael Hansmeyer’s and Benjamin Dillenburger’s Digital Grotesque

My colleagues have realised the first large scale instance of printed architecture, and they call it the Digital Grotesque. A disturbingly beautiful piece about which they say: We aim to create an architecture that defies classification and reductionism. We explore unseen levels of resolution and topological complexity in architecture by developing compositional strategies based on … Continue reading

»symbolizing existence«

»symbolizing existence« war die dritte Klausur in einer Reihe von Veranstaltungen, die ich am Laboratory for Applied Virtuality (CAAD, Institute for Information Technology in Architecture, Swiss Federal Institute of Technology ETH in Zurich) zusammen mit der Stiftung Werner Oechslin in Einsiedeln, Schweiz, organisiere.  Technology is not simply technology, it changes character over time. We suggest there … Continue reading
