floor 2 _ boarding

a-project is developing the application of manipulated grid and component systems in the context of a board floor configuration. The flooring is an application of the grid and component research and is shown in consistent materiality to emphasise the flexibility and variability of the basic grid and component system. These flexible “floors” can both be responsive and controlled with specific contingent sensitivities and algorithmic serial distortions that determine the grid, boundary and component arrangements. These “floors” will be tested within projects at a variety of scales that are responsive to local contingent variables.

a-project is developing the possibilities of these board manipulations that are then subject to the disturbances and interruptions of context and the problematic situation of specific programmes and uses. The floors are shown in an abstracted and isolated condition, but with the capacity to be applicable within individual “rooms” as composite floor configurations or alternatively translated into larger scales of field conditions and structures / envelopes.

floor 1 _ tiling

a-project is developing the application of manipulated grid and component systems in the context of a tiled floor configuration. The “tiled” floor is an application of the grid and component research and is shown in binary materiality to emphasise the flexibility and variability of the basic grid and component system. These flexible “floors” can both be responsive and controlled with specific contingent sensitivities and algorithmic serial distortions that determine the grid, boundary and component arrangements. These “floors” are moderated by external boundaries or internal interstitial seams as well as the specific parameters of material distribution and component tile arrangements. These “floors” will be tested within projects at a variety of scales that are responsive to local contingent variables.

boundary 1 _ seams and limits

a-project is developing the operations of grid structures in relationship to external boundaries and internal “seams”. This develops a flexible and malleable mesh network that can both be responsive and controlled with specific contingent sensitivities and algorithmic serial distortions. These “networks” are moderated by external boundaries or internal interstitial seams and will be tested within projects at a variety of scales that are responsive to local contingent variables.

a-project is developing the possibilities of these “networks” that are then subject to the disturbances and interruptions of context and the problematic situation of specific programmes and uses. The networks continue to be shown in an abstracted and isolated condition, but with the capacity to be applicable at scales from field conditions through to individual building elements, structures and components.

grid 10 _ opening

a-project is developing approaches to the conditional construction of “openings” within a grid framework. Proximity, area, scale and serial algorithmic control are tested within a grid framework to allow specific logics of openings within a surface construction and the associated manipulation of a field. These “openings” within the grid are to be tested within projects at a variety of scales that are responsive to contingent factors which translate the principles of interrupting a surface – these factors manipulating the properties and applications of the aperture.

a-project is developing the possibilities of these “openings” that are then subject to the disturbances and interruptions of context and the problematic situation of specific programmes and uses. The distribution logics continue to be shown in an abstracted and isolated condition, but with the capacity to be applicable at scales from field conditions through to individual building elements, structures and components.

grid 9 _ distribution

a-project is developing approaches to the distribution and conditional manipulation and specification of properties within a grid structure. Proximity, scale and serial algorithmic control are tested within a grid framework to allow specific localised properties and manipulations to form additional layers of field parameters. This developing distribution within the grid is to be tested within projects at a variety of scales that are responsive to specific contexts and contingent factors which frame the distribution – these factors manipulating the properties and applications of an ordering framework.

a-project is developing the possibilities of these distributions that are then subject to the disturbances and interruptions of context and the problematic situation of specific programmes and uses. The distribution logics continue to be shown in an abstracted and isolated condition, but with the capacity to be applicable at scales from field conditions through to individual building elements, structures and components.

grid 8 _ disturbance

a-project is developing approaches to the disturbance and specific localised manipulations within grid structures using the algorithmic manipulation of framing and surfacing across a distributed field. This developing manipulation within the grid is to be tested within projects at a variety of scales that again are responsive to specific contexts and contingent factors – these factors manipulating the disturbance and deviation of an ordering framework.

a-project is developing the possibilities of a fully controlled ordering mechanism that is then subject to the disturbances and interruptions of context and the problematic situation. The localised operations and manipulations of the grids continue to be shown in an abstracted and isolated condition, but with the capacity to be applicable at scales from field conditions through to individual building elements, structures and components.

This development of the approach extends the framework construction of the grid with localised distortion, translation and manipulation.

grid 7 _ perforation

a-project is developing logics of perforation of grid structures with the algorithmic manipulation of solid / void occupation across a distributed field. This developing occupation within the grid is to be tested within projects at a variety of scales that again are responsive to specific contexts and contingent factors that influence the rhythm and occupancy of the grid – in this instance in terms of the logics of perforation.

a-project is developing the possibilities of a fully controlled ordering mechanism that is then subject to the disturbances and interruptions of context and the problematic situation. The perforation of the grids continue to be shown in an abstracted and isolated condition, but with the capacity to be applicable at scales from field conditions through to individual building elements, structures and components.

This development of the approach extends the framework construction of the grid with additional manipulation of perforation.
