grid 11 _ roof constructions

a-project is developing the implications for a framed and surfaced grid construction utilising manipulations of grid and a framework of component typologies and framing intensities. Developing a rigour of operations on a framed roof condition that respond to localised manipulations and contingent implications of “grid” and the potential of “component” typologies within this grid.

a-project is developing these “roof” studies as an ongoing framework of multiple possibilities for architectural configuration. In this instance developing an evolving logic of framed occupation and spatial delineation.

The following images present an initial product of this research:














grid 3 _ construction

a-project is developing applications of a flexible and multiple approach to grid construction and occupation with algorithmically varied occupancy, grid definition and structural construction.

a-project continues to develop a fully digitally controlled structure of grid manipulation to be deployed at a wide range of shifting scales and uses – from floor, wall, elevation, plan to masterplan. These constructions reflect a digital sophistication and varied / multiple narratives and logics of formation with interrelated components, profiles and grid constructions.

This development of the approach extends the composition and logics of construction of the grid and the 3d operations of components within the grid structure. Diverse modules and operations demonstrate a shifting and multiple form of spatial construct.

The following images present an initial product of this research – manipulations of varied occupancy and structural construction:

module tectonics 2 _ frame

a-project is developing flexible frameworks of modular tectonics – exploring versatile structures of frame and module manipulation as enclosures that move between “frame”, “surface”, “space” and “object” and allow for complex descriptions formed from primitive architectural elements.

The constructions allow for the multiple translations and reconstructions of form, scale and material – creating an involving framework of diverse structures of data and form that can be translated through varied specific locations and environments to deliver varied interventions and spaces.

The following images present some initial examples of the possibilities in simple framed enclosures, surfaces, walls, floors and roofs:
