from rapid-prototyping we arrive to the [obvious] next step: rapid-production. it’s still a little rough, but it’s a first step to large scale, high quality production system directly from a digital design.

printing in stone brings us one step closer to a future reality: the ability to print our own buildings exactly as we designed them, directly on site.

according to the company, D-Shape printed material is very similar to marble and environmentally friendly, “with a resistance and traction much superior to Portland Cement, so much so that there is no need to use iron to reinforce the structure.”

i’m eager to see real aplications from this system!

check their website for more information and the review from

“The ‘Concrete Geometries’ Research Cluster at the Architectural Association School of Architecture in London is seeking submissions of work from the fields of art, architecture, sciences and humanities that explore the relationship between spatial form and social or aesthetic processes.”

this is an interesting opportunity for the development of studies in algorithmic architecture. go for it!

Ganzfeld Piece (Modell), 2008

the new exhibition from James Turrell just opened in Wolfsburg (Germany), with what’s said to be “the worldwide largest museum installation he has made to date“: a sublime space of changing light, where our perception of it’s dimensions fade with the soft colours – a space for the meditative contemplation of pure, essential beauty.

after you get in, you never want to leave it… ever again!

«aperture is a facade installation with interactive and narrative displaying modes. Consisting of an iris diaphragm matrix, the facade’s surface with its apertures’ variable opening diameters is enriched by a dynamic translucency, that creates new imagery as well as a new channel for communication between inside and outside.»

beautiful, isn’t it?

cubists transformed the way we saw the world: time and space joined in one dimension, forcing images to represent simultaneously more than one point of view – destructing an object so that our minds could rebuild it again as one in a snapshot.

but, what happens when one tries to flatten the world? how does one planify reality, as if it was an atlas of our lifes?

he’s been trying to do it, with amazing results.

a tribute to a friend!
