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.
The paper ‘Architecture Inspired by Nature’ by Clemens Preisinger and Adam Orlinski was published in the Meeting Nature Halfway.
Clemens Preisinger and Moritz Heimrath hosted a workshop titled “Optimization of Statically Informed Grid-Shell Patterns” at the International Association for Shell and Spatial Structures IASS 2017: Interfaces Symposium in Hamburg
As part of the Design Modelling Symposium 2017 held in Paris, the team lead a masterclass on parametric design strategies. The masterclass was held before the conference, of which the results were presented during the conference proceedings. Image by Design Modelling Symposium
KEPOS_c[pd]g collective post digital garden is a research pavalion developed from the Energy Design Studio at the University of Applied Arts Vienna designed by Angelica Lorenzi, Dennis Schiaroli. The project was presented as part of MAK Future Lab. Adam Orlinski supported the team with the parametric design and engineering. Images by Angelica Lorenzi, Dennis Schiaroli […]
Moritz Heimrath, along with Mark Fahlbusch of Bollinger+Grohmann recently led a one week instensive workshop with students at Sci Arc.
The team was recently involved in the two week workshop held at ENSA Versailles about parametric truss structures in bridge design.
Moritz Heimrath gave a workshop at the Institute of Structure and Design (KoGe) at the University of Innsbruck on the topic of equidistant streamlines patterns.
Klaus Bollinger gave a lecture on the work of Bollinger + Grohmann and the current research being developed in nformations and Karamba3d.
