Based on an interweaving grid, altered after the existing urban fabric, the Stitch urban strategy adapts and respects the architectural heritage of the site at the same time as it challenges it by proposing a rather bold design concept, to give Handen a strong identity as one of the new Stockholm regional cores. /////////Stitch is:
Thesis project developed at the Architectural Association’s Design Research Lab during 2010-2012 under the Alissa Andrasek Studio. It proposes a design process as a bottom up system with the capacity to produce buildings that self structure, adapt and co-evolve within the environment considering natural resources as part of a its tectonic system.
reTUR(n)INGmatter creates complex geometries with a variety of performative capabilities materialized with 3D printed technologies. It instrumentalizes the Alan Touring´s reaction-diffusion principle simulated in the computer and series of constraints for its materialization, developing a series of emerging forms prototyped into 3D printers.
Fabware is the product of the first design workshop at Architectural Association´s DRL. It researches design strategies for space filling, utilizing non-linear systems that exhibits complexity in its global form from very simple components and rules of agregation.
