'Res is a group of architects pursuing a Masters in Architecture and Urbanism at the Design Research Lab of the Architectural Association in London. Directed by Rob Stuart-Smith, Res researches the generative assembly of fibre-reinforced composite frames to create integrated architectural bodies through topological adaptation, folding techniques at various scales, and numerically-controlled fibre placement. These non-linear forms of organising material intend to minimise transportation space as well as construction tools while challenging component-based tectonics. We combine a highly precise prefabrication method with advanced digital simulations to prototype architecture that integrates spatial affects with performance.'
