Spatial Constructions not based on Cartesian or Euclidian space-time continuum

NEW and improved:

  • “What shape would soap bubbles in a continuous array of soap bubbles be?”

In the last decade the phenomenon of 'Blob' architecture (or liquid design, or 'non-standard architecture') was introduced in the building industry by ambitious architects, modelling with new computer software. This software proved to be excellently suited for designing spatial environments featuring fluidly curved surfaces. The arts, industrial design, interior architecture, 'free-form' architecture and free-form engineering can benefit from this new tool. Numerous and impressive are the examples of audacious architects who won design competitions with daring schemes. In reality they posed more problems, mainly of technical nature, than anyone ever believed.

  • aether architecture - exploring the thresholds between architecture, people and media

  • Haque Design & Research - The domain of architecture has been transformed by developments in interaction research, wearable computing, mobile connectivity, people-centered design, contextual awareness, RFID systems and ubiquitous computing. These technologies alter our understanding of space and change the way we relate to each other. We no longer think of architecture as static and immutable; instead we see it as dynamic, responsive and conversant.

  • Synetic Structures
    • Abstract: A strong, lightweight structural system wherein curved structural elements are tangentially joined. Compressive forces are distributed in a near continuous manner throughout the matrix. Tensile forces in the system are present primarily to brace, support and pre-stress the compression net. Synetic designs are scaleable from molecular through architectural levels, finding many applications in dome shaped and spherical structures. The system also provides a force interaction model that is applicable to a broad array of real and theoretical problems
