title Calculated Bananas: Defining a new introductory course in visual design for first year architecture students
source Digital Design [21th eCAADe Conference Proceedings / ISBN 0-9541183-1-6] Graz (Austria) 17-20 September 2003, pp. 519-522
summary A novel introductory course in visual design is presented that combines the teaching of various subjects and skills around the development of digital fruit. – A mandatory subject for first year architecture students at Graz University of Technology, the course is jointly offered by two institutes and combines the teaching of hand sketching, descriptive geometry, computer aided design, generative algorithms, image processing, desktop and online publishing and networked collaboration. The ambitious pedagogy uses information technology to provide links and synergies between the different subjects. The digital fruit are developed in a collaborative environment that fosters the evolution of new kinds of forms and structures through exchanging and crossbreeding of CAAD data. The paper reports on the experiences gained during the first installment the course in which 130 students were enrolled.
keywords Creative collaboration: evolutionary processes; digital fruit; complex geometry; methods of representation.

title Living Wall System (LIWAS)
source Living Architecture Systems Group White Papers 2019 [ISBN 978-1-988366-18-0] Riverside Architectural Press: Toronto, Canada 2019. pp.111 - 122
summary This proposal is about the design and prototyping of a Living Wall System (LIWAS) as a test bed for integrating concepts from biology into architectural design. The "Living Wall” is a new way of interpreting a wall system that we use in architecture and building. We try to integrate characteristics of living organisms into the wall design to harness some of the intriguing qualities of life into our built surroundings. Living Walls may include flows of water; they may move, adapt geometry and change appearance; they may be inhabited by algae, plants and other organisms and in general be “alive.” The framework of the proposal is the overlap between architectural design and biological research, using biomimicry as a methodology for information transfer between the fields (Image 1).

summary The production of concrete structure components is often a backbreaking process due to the inconvenient and time-consuming process of producing the formwork. Depending on the geometry, this can be a very time-consuming activity. A trial will be made to solve these problems within the manufacturing process using adapted binder jetting technology. First of all, the research will deal with the behavior of concrete as well as the bond between the cement paste and the aggregate. Various additives and grain sizes will be determined to find an appropriate result. On the other hand, different spray and drop systems will be analyzed to compare the new method and the common binder jetting setup. After fabricating some geometrical shapes manually the study is going to be continued using computer-aided manufacturing.

title RYUGYONG.ORG: Other Levels to the Ryugyong Hotel: An idea on architecture and geopolitics
source CAADRIA 2006 [Proceedings of the 11th International Conference on Computer Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia] Kumamoto (Japan) March 30th - April 2nd 2006, 605-607
summary The prestigious international monthly architecture periodical Domus opens its June 2005 issue with the lines: "A ruin of the future? The 330-metre-tall skeleton of an unfinished hotel towers like a concrete pyramid over North Korea's capital, Pyongyang." The magazine's call "to transform the Ryugyong Hotel into a worldwide antenna for ideas" (Boeri et al. 2005, cover) was a pronunciamento we could not resist.
