The main aim of ATLAS OF SENSATIONS is to introduce prospective students to contemporary modes of architectural design based on computational design techniques in combination with novel strategies in thinking about architectural bodies. Emphasis is given on the development of unique design tactics discussing the combination of intensive forces, geomorphic organisms, and process orientated design strategies with the potential to result in informed spatial solutions.

Form Follows Performance

"Using digital tools as a catalyst for better and more sustainable design.

This blog represents our ongoing findings on vision and reality about utilizing digital tools in the architectural and urban design field.
We believe that in sustainable design the really significant decisions happen in the early stages. Hence the focus of this blog is on green building design tools for architects and planners that are easy to learn and apply. To be successful in the architectural community these tools shall be interactive and provide visually comprehensible output. They shall enable the designer to make informed decisions based on simulation results and support clear client communication."

"Pivot is a multi-disciplinary design practice. Our team has background in product design, architecture and engineering. We are just as comfortable working with mass produced products as with custom solutions in architecture. A human centered design approach is common to all our work."

"Designcoding.net is a digital diary of research on the relationship between basics of geometry and design computing, including the experiments with parametric modeling, architectural geometry, computer-aided fabrication, and exploration of pedagogical approaches for design education. Currently it constitutes the fundamentals of parametric modeling education, by organizing it's knowledge basis (gnosis), synthetic components (synthesis) and design utilizations (praxis)."

"Material_Codes is documenting academic research, teaching and experimentation investigating the cross-contamination between architecture and digital fabrication technologies. This blog contains work from academic design studios and workshops, as well as independent research which is -as the blog itself- in an ongoing state of evolution."
