Our mission is to raise $20,000 so that ten of our students are able to buy materials, produce their modules, and afford to ship them to the Nous Gallery in London. Modules will be made out of poster board, foam, resin, or plaster. Here are some of the projects we worked on.
Evo Phizz by Philip Caleja
Evo Phizz was based on a modular origami called the phizz unit. Rules extracted from that were then manipulated to explore the capabilities of it and unleash its potential. It ended up being simplified into an easily mass produced module and also materials used were optimized without compensating what it can do. Also, the strengthened connections between the modules allow it to aggregate into bigger systems of unlimited possibilities.
Z-Rose by Samantha Goldman
Z-Rose is a smart module that evolved from penrose tiling and interlocking chains. It has interlocking connections allowing it to form asymmetrical petterns. It is essentially a 3d interlocking penrose.
Hooks by Samantha Tartaro
Hooks use their own weight and their strategically placed appendages to grow off of each other in every direction. They hang from each other to create many unforeseen systems that resemble plant life.
Jax by Monica Franco
Nous is an architectural pop-up gallery, and venue in London outside of the academic setting for up and coming architects and designers to showcase their work and discuss current topics. Nous sprung up around London with exhibitions, social events and panel debates. Nous has covered topics from digital design and fabrication to provocative architecture looking at social and physical borders.
