“How virtual becomes real” 2018

The 8th edition of “How virtual becomes real” continued the research into the applications of form-resistant structures. The virtual and the real were synthesised by means of both physical form-finding and numerical/digital models. The studio began dedicating five weeks to experimental and numerical form-finding techniques (on elastic gridshells, concrete shells…

Ho-Low-Tech: Making in Mixed Reality

Sofia Colabella, Alessandro Liuti and I completed a 3-day workshop on “Mixed Reality”, directed by Fologram and NExT Lab at the Melbourne School of Design (MSD). Workshop Overview Mixed reality overlays physical environments with digital content (holograms), fixed in place and at full scale. Holograms can be used as direct…
