We hope you've had a wonderful Christmas! To usher in the new year, we hacked an IKEA lamp and designed an elegant lampshade with a custom lithophane of the Jewel Changi Airport to remind everyone to come visit Singapore once this pandemic is over!
About a week ago, an issue with a particular covered walkway appeared all over our news feed. Because covered walkways are such an essential part of the built environment here in Singapore, especially during the rainy season, we decided to create an automated script to make life for designers a little easier!

Goethe said, “Music is liquid architecture; architecture is frozen music”. Putting his theory to the test, we chose some parameters from a 30 second clip of Astronomia, a song by Vicetone & Tony Igy, to drive the formation of a cave-like structure. We then studied the space at human scale in Virtual Reality to see [...]
We did a visibility study of the Skeld map from Among us, and here is the result! Let us know if you would like to see other architectural studies of maps and place from games, movies, or TV shows! Mapping visibility through isovist volumes is important in Architectural design, especially when considering optimal views and [...]
Happy Deepavali! We created a three-dimensional Rangoli you can experience in VR! Rangoli is an art form in which patterns are created on the ground using materials such as coloured rice, coloured sand, quartz powder or flower petals. In our own little way, we tried to keep the festive spirit alive during this COVID-19 period [...]

The controller enabled me to inject more personality into the massing process in the same way I would design sound. Controllers [...]
Introduction Computational Thinking does not necessitate the use of computers. It is a problem-solving method that is being taught in schools to breakdown complex problems into solvable steps. To investigate, we tested our computational thinking capabilities by digitally recreating the design of a frame and string model, first in SketchUp and then in Dynamo Revit [...]
