nformations recently exhibited at the Tallinn Architecture Biennale 2015Body 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.

The main exhibition of this year’s Tallinn Architecture Biennale TAB 2015 is looking at hybrid forms of construction where cutting-edge technology and science meets the self-driven variability of material systems and where the degrees of freedom and control define an outcome of multiplicity within tolerance, trying to find a balance between the unruly and the predictable – body and building.

As forthcoming architecture is moving beyond common borders of the discipline, the exhibition is exploring new territories of building aesthetics and spatial qualities of self-driven intelligent systems, where architecture and science have entered into a dialogue between the computational and the physical – illustrated by 10 international architectural studios exhibiting prototypes and installations in the 500 m2 main space of the Museum of Estonian Architecture.
