compilation of student work from Eye,Robot  at SCI-Arc Fall 2012.

“Eye, Robot” focuses on the intersection of computation, robotic fabrication, and cinematography. The course explores robotic motion control as a creative medium for designers, mainly through the use of the custom robotic animation software platform, designed specifically for the SCI-Arc Robot House. The platform has the unique ability for the designer not only to design motion, but also to program, simulate, and speculate all at the same time. This type of animation space suspends the distinction between simulation, speculation, and ‘the real’, making it very hard for one to determine which is which while questioning traditional notions of architectural representation.[click for gallery]

Instructors: Brandon Kruysman, Jonathan Proto

Let me tell u somethin you dont know

 

These guyz after creating this top of the topz project revealed to an exclusive interview their main source of inspiration behind their design..
(great render btw)

….

can you guess?

(I know is ultra challenging><give it a shot)

OMG its our friend  Hernan.Diaz.Alonso !

big up to suckerpunch once again

awkward los angeles

the awkward moment when sci-arc students go on a field trip and get confronted with this type of documents…

scripting at its finest.lolz

Students visit the Los Angeles studio of Don Chadwick, a designer for Herman Miller.

a few weeks ahead of our time

hahah remember this post where we outlined some of the “Ups” and “Downs” of the architecture world ?

(link) ☞ [SO] back // Ups & Downz

one of the UPS was our approval of:

hot chicks in Sci-Arc like ♥♥ MAKENZIE ♥♥

Apparently someone from Sci-Arc is an FGaddict and decided to spread the love

As a result Makenzie is now the Cover.Image of their Facebook Page !

oooh yeah !1

Dont tell me we didnt tell you !

< Ciao for now little parametric hipsterz

[SO] back // Ups & Downz

hallo germany, hallo Europez

what an action packed april this one has been…or not. The truth is that the FG team has been keeping one eye out for random lols here and there… Truth is that there were quite a few of them, but we aint no haterz, so were not gonna focus only one the bad side…

So lets start with our Ups and Downz for April.

UP #1

SCi-Arc

Now, we all know that we are not so in fond of SciArc and their tactics but we have to admit it when we see something we actually like. Figuring on the top, and only entry, of the UP category this random chinese dude, who DISSOBEYED his tutors instructions to FULLY PARAMETRISIZE his project, amd had the balls to use his Photoshop skillz for once in that school…No need to say this guy failed his semester…lolzz

-like bringing knives to a gunfight..wa?-

FG MEMO

WE ARE FUTURE GIRAFFES.

WE ARE INTERNET CELEBRITIES.

WE ARE LEGION.

AND

WE APPROVE THESE HOT CHICKS FROM SCIARC.

♥♥ MAKENZIE ♥♥

*FG approved*

DOWN #1

Dezeen.

yes yes, we know that every time your first year tutor asks you do find some refferences for your project, most of you botz run like headless chickens to Dezeen’s homepage, but..

THIS IS GETTING PHAKING ANNOYING!

Unfortunately the most interesting articles lately on dezeen are the mixtape articles from five years ago…

THIS IS GETTING PHAKING ANNOYING!

DOWN #2

STARCHITECTS.

So, what up with our so precious idols…?no, seriously…

Zaha is like trying to boost her popularity through random design fairs( last she was spotted at Milan’s Design Fair, being interviewed by a random chinese dezeen intern…’nuff said), Gehry is still locked in his private room, having an eye-to-eye showdown with a koutsomoura*(scroll down to see what koutsomoura means) in order to find inspiration, and The BIG is still playing his ball-even though his playing volleyball with tennis balls…- and Rem has gone guerilla, withdrawn in russia and launching his strategic operations, undercover mode.

FG TIP 2 STARCHITECTS:

guys, hire an image consultant, new 3d monkeys, more hot secretaries…

And for the end, another classical case of

“WHO COPIED WHO??”

Leaving it to you to judge who copied who…

CIAO FOR NOW

Fragile ◆ The Big Egg Hunt // by BREAD

I imagine most of you are familiar at this point with the “Big Egg Hunt” that took place in London [not really sure if its still on]

Here is a great entry by Bread who brought some top class digital fabrication atmosphere with their Egg.

“Fragile was a pretty daunting construct, fabricated from just over 1 Kilogramme of selectively laser sintered nylon – donated and manufactured by the DMC - thats quite a small amount of material for an elliptical volume over 750mm tall and 450mm wide. Not to mention that the majority of elements are just a few millimetres thick. Due to its complexity, the shape had to be split into separate shells which were assembled in a negative mould. Each shell was joined by ‘tapping’ using a soldering iron (not all to dissimilar from how you would locate metal panels for welding) and then fixed with epoxy resin.

It’s always difficult to appreciate how the complexity one can create in the digital realm will manifest in the physical, so it was a rather nerve racking process watching the egg take shape. Suffice it to say, everyone was pretty pleased with the final result.”

Meanwhile in L.A there is some “show me the money” action ^^

cheerioz

some jury action

So,

Hernan and the boyz gathered for a quick jury. The stuff on the wall was more or less something like :

and this guy decided to very wisely rest his eyes for a couple of mins.

Big up to this dude from the FG. 

Luv to le “always tired look” arkitektz

Eric.Owen.Moss // what is architecture ?

 

to answer the question:

“what is architecture?”

you have to first find its enemy, you have to find its Moby Dick. But as i stood on the deck like Ahab, I realised there is no single Moby, just endless Dicks’
