nformations is an arts-based research cluster of architects, artists, designers and engineers, funded by the Austrian Science Fund (FWF), located at the University of Applied Arts (Vienna). Within the field of generative workflow of contemporary design, a collection of strategies, methods, tools and prototypic models is being developed. The research project focuses on the dissection, reinterpretation and documentation of contemporary digital production practice by means of serial experimentation. An interactive atlas of correlated aesthetics, entities and formulations shall contribute to the growing community of open source design practitioners and makers in the digital chain.

Robert recently presented some ongoing research and led a 2 day workshop at the Machine Learning Symposium hosted by CITA and REAL in Copenhagen. An introduction to a box of tools which are borrowed from evolutionary computing and machine learning. Methods have been edited and exploited to merge into the practice of architectural and engineering design,[…]
Robert’s presentation of his paper ‘Towards AI Drawing Agents’ at the Design Modelling Symposium in Copenhagen is now live. All other keynote lectures and paper presentations can be seen at the CITA Vimeo website.
Some shots from the recent exhibition as part of the Contemporary Code: Artistic Research in Hong Kong organised by the University of Applied Arts Vienna. Objects presented included: spatial weaving. structural force bundling structural porosity. large shell deformation + dual graph pattern nodal displace. dynamic cross-section adaptation “Research at the University of Applied Arts Vienna is[…]

Contemporary Code: Artistic Research is an exhibition project organised by the University of Applied Arts Vienna in cooperation with the School of Creative Media/City University of Hong Kong. The exhibition will present works from several research projects all with an interdisciplinary approach in the arts and science. nformations has been invited to show some of[…]
Robert Vierlinger presented his recently published paper, ‘Towards AI Drawing Agents’ at the Design Modelling Symposium in Copenhagen. The paper is published in the Modelling Behaviour book and touches on aspects of interdisciplinary fields that help us to design buildings today. This paper speculates on the applicability of methods from artificial intelligence in generative design. In particular, Cppn-Neat as[…]
The team recently attended and lead a workshop at the Design Modelling Symposium at CITA (Centre for Information Technology and Architecture) in Copenhagen, Denmark. The workshop “Multi-Objective Optimization in Parametric Design – Modelling with Karamba / Octopus” was a 2 day intense collaboration with the participants to hone their skills in structural analysis in Karamba and[…]
nformations recently exhibited at the Tallinn Architecture Biennale 2015 ‘Body Building’ main exhibition. We were invited by the curators, Siim Tuksam & Sille Philak to show work examples as part of our ongoing research. Of particular interest are our investigations into BESO structures and agent based optimisation processes. Photo © Tonu Tunnel The main exhibition of[…]
