Our design studio make us of innovative technologies which allow for functional and formal explorations which go beyond the conventional. Computational design techniques allow us to define a design proposal by using a set of customizable parameters which control and define the end result. The aim to propose design solutions which satisfy pre-existing limitations, aesthetic and functional goal and design performance ambitions (interior solar studies, permeability studies, night time illuminations, etc). This workflow allows us to control the entire design process from concept to final design solution which is ready for digital fabrication.
Computational design efficiently and flexibly mediates the relation between design intent and final design proposal. Spatial interventions which make use of complex geometry can be achieved, by using an algorithmic approach that is defined by a design intent and not solely based on intuition, through the use of computational design tools.
In our design studio, Florin Stan, architect and computational design specialist, is mainly focused on developing advanced geometry processes related to our design interventions with a strong focus on computational design and digital fabrication. Being involved for more than 3 years with experimental design research projects at Odico. Aps (DK), he has work on research of implementations projects for or in collaboration with Zaha Hadid Architects (UK), 3XN/GXN Architects (DK), Gramazio Kohler Research (SUI) and Studio Olafur Eliasson (DK), contributing to pioneering developments in the domain of digital fabrication based design.
Florin was a tutor at several computational design workshops among which: AA-Visiting School Aarhus 2016, organized by Architectural Association London, Hot-Blade Workshop, hosted by Danish Technical University, Odico Aps and 3XN/GXN Architects, as well as at Pavilion ZA2016 during Architecture Days – Cluj Napoca.
