MARC FORNES / THEVERYMANY™ is kindly featured within the latest article from Preston Scott Cohen ” The Hidden Core of Architecture” published within Harvard Design Magazine #35.

Interesting… not sure if temporality is not only a necessary by product in order to artificially capitalize building experience as large physical objects (since the only thing one can afford when self-founded) and therefore hopefully trust from potential clients to grow experimentation in scale and eventually permanency…

MARC FORNES :: THEVERYMANY™ featured within:

Scripting Cultures: Architectural Design and Programming from Prof. Mark Burry

Published by Wiley | August 2011

With scripting, computer programming becomes integral to the digital design process. It provides unique opportunities for innovation, enabling the designer to customise the software around their own predilections and modes of working. It liberates the designer by automating many routine aspects and repetitive activities of the design process, freeing-up the designer to spend more time on design thinking. Software that is modified through scripting offers a range of speculations that are not possible using the software only as the manufacturers intended it to be used. There are also significant economic benefits to automating routines and coupling them with emerging digital fabrication technologies, as time is saved at the front-end and new file-to-factory protocols can be taken advantage of. Most significantly perhaps, scripting as a computing program overlay enables the tool user (designer) to become the new tool maker (software engineer). Though scripting is not new to design, it is only recently that it has started to be regarded as integral to the designer’s skill set rather than a technical speciality.  Many designers are now aware of its potential, but remain hesitant.  This book treats scripting not only as a technical challenge, requiring clear description, guidance and training, but also, and more crucially, answers the question as to why designers should script in the first place, and what the cultural and theoretical implications are.
This book:

– Investigates the application of scripting for productivity, experimentation and design speculation.
– Offers detailed exploration of the scripting of Gaudí’s final realised design for the Sagrada Família, leading to file-to-factory digital fabrication.
– Features projects and commentary from over 30 contemporary scripting leaders, including Evan Douglis, Marc Fornes, Sawako Kaijima, Achim Menges, Neri Oxman, Casey Reas and Hugh Whitehead of Foster + Partners.

MARC FORNES :: THEVERYMANY™ has kindly been invited to the GLOBAL Design: Elsewhere Envisioned exhibition & symposium in NYC.

GLOBAL Design: Elsewhere Envisioned | Exhibition | NYU | Opening May 25th.
NYU Gallatin Labowitz Main Gallery, One Washington Place on May 25, 2011. 

GLOBAL Design: Elsewhere Envisioned | Symposium | NYU | May 26th.

“The Executive Committee of Architecture at Gallatin, NYU will present the 2011 GLOBAL [Global Local Open Border Architecture and Landscape] speaker series and exhibition.  The event is entitled; GLOBAL Design: Elsewhere Envisioned.
GLOBAL Design NYU has as its mission to bring together current designers, educators, and innovators who are clustered in certain locations, but whose work is far-reaching in outlook.
The GLOBAL Design lecture series are comprised to showcase potent innovation processes as it relates to visionary architecture, urbanism, ecological planning, and how this process of innovation ties to education.
In our inaugural year the panel discussions bring together world-renowned urbanists, historians and theorists.  We are excited to offer the exhibition this year at the prestigious NYU Gallatin Labowitz Main Gallery, One Washington Place on May 25, 2011.”

110209_MF @ Princeton University

Princeton, NJ| Princeton University School of Architecture | Feb 9th | 6pm

Marc Fornes will give a talk on the latest work of THEVERYMANY™ — a small experimental studio focusing on research into the field of design, computation & prototypical structures — and its reality (and exotism into such field) of being a “free electron” not part of (and supported by) any larger academic institution.

Many thanks to Axel Kilian for his kind invitation and Stan Allen for making it possible.

PARIS | F(AA)SHIONS | AA Visiting Workshop | 21-31st March 2011
Director: Jorge Ayala | Location: Musee des Arts Decoratifs, Paris

Marc Fornes has kindly been invited to run one of the studio at the f(AA)shions workshop / one of the visiting workshop of Architectural Association School that will be hosted at the Musee des Arts Decoratifs in Paris.

Paris AA Visiting School Website – link   |   Application: vistingschool@aaschool.ac.uk

Marc will propose to his group a special type of workshop in a two steps process:

# First to be part of the assembly process for an installation by THEVERYMANY™ for the Centre Pompidou in Paris. The piece will be assembled at the Centre** and will give a chance for the students to experience the process &  logistic involved around the physical production of complex morphologies resulting from the development of highly custom protocols of descriptive geometry (written in Python / Rhcommon).

# Then will initiate the students to text based protocols/scripting (RhinoPython/Rhinoscript) – and investigate a similar design approach then the installation through applied exercises on the human morphology and study multiple ways to describe it…

Looking forward…

** in order to be able to enter the closed floor of the Centre each students will need to be personally insured with “responsabilite civile” and to sign a discharge.

101020_MF @Boston | GSD Midterm review

Marc Fornes was kindly invited by Achim Menges for the midterm review of his studio at Harvard/GSD. As last year the studio presented an extensive and rigourus research on the properties of wood veneer (anisotropic and hygroscopic behaviour ) as the starting point for the development of 1/1 prototypic structures. Great work!

Note: that event is somehow victim of its success and got fully booked within less than a week time! Never mind further Rhinoscript workshops can be organized! if you are interested to host one (or a summer course) do not hesitate to contact directly McNeel or me – it can easily be organized within a University framework or custom tailored for offices to specific problems solving…
