Patterned Landscapes

Cyprus has a long history of decorative patterns of noteworthy geometric complexity.  Starting from discovering such a 2D pattern, participants of ARCH-262, Advanced Computer Aided Design, [ARC] University of Nicosia, developed and proposed their own 3-dimesnional pattern and populated it to create a tessellated tile, using the knowledge acquired during the course. The tile was […]

Flex-Shell

Title: ARCH-392 Catalyst I –Parametric Design and Digital Fabrication Workshop Dates: 15th March – 18th March 2016, [ARC] University of Nicosia Gridshells are efficient lightweight structures that are shaped to purely correspond to the forces of nature. Historic outcomes of such form-finding design processes are remarkable doubly curved shells, efficient and affordable to construct. Pioneer […]

Three-D

“Three D” aimed to further promote the technique of 3D printing to the Cyprus public. It was officially part of the “Fab 11 Conference and Symposium, Boston” (Distributed Events) and was hosted by the Lemesos International Documentary Festival. It included a special screening of the documentary “Print the Legend” as well as in situ operation […]

BLOCKS
