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.

nformations supported the team at CITA on the research project ‘A Bridge Too Far’. The project investigates incremental sheet metal forming using robotic technologies. Images from KADK
Moritz Heimrath gave a workshop on remeshing and parametric design at the Hochbau Institute at the University of Innsbruck.
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.

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.

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[…]
Quick excepts from studies of a machine learning the strokes of a drawing and obtaining fields.
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: 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 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.
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[…]
Moritz Heimrath presented the work of nformations and Bollinger + Grohmann at the Leuphana Universität Lüneburg in Lüneburg, Germany.
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[…]
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,[…]
