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

Karamba3D Masterclass – Design Modelling Symposium

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

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    […]

A Bridge Too Far – Incremental Sheet Metal Forming

AAC16 – UAK Summer Workshop

Robert Vierlinger was part of the team for the summer workshop Architecture Challenge at the University of Applied Arts. Together with the university and Clever Contour, the students developed a bundling structure of light plastic profiles. Textile surfaces span the linear elements to create unique spatial experiences.

Crossing into Physical Realms with Collaborative Interactive Machine Learning

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,[…]

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[…]

‘Machine Vision’ @ UAK

To assist the students with their semester design work, we were asked by Studio Lynn at the University of Applied Arts Vienna to teach a two day workshop in Structural Basics and parametric structural modelling in Karamba.

Contemporary Code

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[…]

Towards AI Drawing Agents

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[…]

‘Large Span’ @ UAK

The team recently lead a 3 day workshop for Studio Hani Rashid at the University of Applied Arts. We went through structural engineering basics through to advanced parametric modelling techniques in Karamba and Grasshopper.

DMS Copenhagen 2015

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[…]

TAB 2015 “Body Building”

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[…]

An Atlas of Experiments in Materialized Information

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,[…]
