Michael Hansmeyer and Benjamin Dillenburger: Digital Grotesque


We aim to create an architecture that defies classification and reductionism. We explore unseen levels of resolution and topological complexity in architecture by developing compositional strategies based on purely geometric processes. In the Digital Grotesque project, we use these algorithms to create a form that appears at once synthetic and organic. The design process thus strikes a delicate balance between the expected and the unexpected,

Snøhetta Study: Casa Zeb


To obtain the classification of Zero Energy Building, housing must prove that it can offset 100% of CO2 emissions, compensation made ​​possible among other things, the study of geometry and volume of the enclosure, orientation south-east, the positioning of the glass surfaces and the choice of materials highly qualified. The response of the study Scandinavian Snøhetta is a module family built in Larvik, Norway, equipped

Aro Ha: New Zeland


In early 2010, Chris Madison and Damian Chaparro discussed their shared interest in creating a transition space for those interested in nature, adventure, self-development, alternative health, and results-oriented fitness. Excited by their common views of the world, and the potential transformative impact of such a project, the concept of Aro Hā was born. Located on the South Island of New Zealand, Aro Hā is just
