Results of Smart Geometry workshop on display at the Chinese University of Hong Kong

Thursday, July 24th, 2014

Christian J. Lange of Rocker-Lange Architects teamed up with Jason Carlow, Assistant Professor at HKU, Ramon van der Heijden and Alan Tai from Front Inc Hong Kong, and Gustav Fagerström from Buro Happold New York for this years Smart Geometry Conference in Hong Kong.

The results of the workshop entitled HK_SmarTowers were on display during the two day conference on July 18th & 19th at the Chinese University of Hong Kong. The project that was developed during the four days looked at how data informs tower massing strategies, structure and organization. Addressing the issue of repetition, standardization, mass production and customization the project utilized intelligent digital design systems to arrive at a set of unique tower structures that were based on different figure ground strategies and ultimately built with a ready made system of kit of parts.

Thanks a lot to all Cluster Collaborators for the great work: Marco Juliani, Megan Ng, Oliver Thomas, Piotr Baszynski, Luca Maccarinelli, Binsun Hu, Amos Chan, Vincent Ip, Albert Lo, Riyad Joucka, Mariane de Souza, Alison Li, Xinliu Huang
