wall 2 _ frame, surface and floor

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

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

grid 4 _ extrusion

a-project is developing the logics of extrusion and 3-dimensional surface manipulation of a flexible grid field in combination with an algorithmically varied framework, grid definition and structural construction.

a-project is introducing logics of surfacing and covering of a grid field within the fully digitally controlled structure of grid manipulation. The surface occupancy now further developing the potential applications for a wide range of shifting scales and uses. These surface constructions develop the digital sophistication and varied / multiple narratives and logics of formation with interrelated components, profiles and grid constructions.

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

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.

module tectonics 3 _ brick

a-project continues to develop flexible frameworks of modular tectonics, and in this case investigates the potential in complex and flexible manipulations of basic brick components and supporting structure. The wall surfaces challenge the material limitations – moving between the structural requirements of masonry construction to walls that are structured in addition to module accumulation.

The constructions allow for the multiple translation and reconstruction of form, scale and material – here developing an involving framework of brick components as a multiple field of potential.

The following images present some initial examples of the possibilities in wall distributions:

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:

module tectonics 1 _ wall framing

a-project, as part of ongoing research and development into construction and digital processes of design, is investigating the dynamic and formal potential in algorithmically controlled wall framing systems and profile connections and interruptions.

a-project continues to explore the ascalar potential of multiple forms of representation and translation of architectural elements and systems – wall properties and structural profiles articulating a specific surface, detailed technical connections, bespoke ornament or a wider landscape and field.
