Student projects exhibition at Barlett, UCL

Inconspicuous building of UCL in London, namely the Faculty of Architecture – The Bartlett,  between 25th and 29th of September became a host of three-level exhibition of 3D printings and interactive installations. Architecture projects, created by students of the final year, were focused on the architectural ‘chimeras’, both possessing frightened and fascinating structure. Projects reflected authors’ thoughts and feelings about architecture.

First level presented plastic prints, made by 3D printers, which were designed to use geometric forms and various lighting techniques. The combination of these two elements resulted in creation of objects which really caught the eye and made strong impression on the recipient. Next to the prints visitors could also see interactive installations.

Highlighted 3D prints

Passing  an exhibition of prints, I walked into the room where I could find less static projects made by students from Barlett. Thin circular plywood was imprinted with different patterns. In the middle of installations  Kinect sensor was placed, reading my moves through space, and transforming them to pressure pushed through special air tubes, making the whole thing move.

Another system followed the movements of the visitors using mechanical arm and displayed computer generated structures, on the small screen set at the end. At the ceiling a series of hanging tubes were mounted,  reading visitors’ movements and translating  them to coloufulr light projected on the ceiling.  When I entered into a large hall on the top floor, a few meters high structure caught my attention. Large project cut by milling machines was made of a very light, but also very hard styrofoam. The structure resembled the surface of the mountainous terrain, which was clearly visible by highlighting it from the bottom. Among the hills and valleys new projects were presented , this time created by 3D printers.

The main sculpture of the exhibition is RC2 – the structure inspired by animal chimeras, resembling a standing lion. Project created by student team, is mounted on the internal rack to which they fixed triangular panels. Spiky structure was partially decomposed, so I could easily see all the details.

“aRC2himera” project

One of the projects presented in Bartlett, was the exploring the utilisation of modern production techniques in every day use objects. One of the students designed a rough and spiky rubber case for iPhone. The idea behind the project, was to create a representation of the thoughts that torn a man apart.

UCL School students, using 3d print and milling technology with proficiency, went a step further in the design of parametric structures. Using sculptures, they were trying to put thoughts and feelings into their projects. They tried to weave the life factors that bother us every day, looking for the solutions through design work.

The exhibition presented the projects of MArch students and took place  in the Royal Ear Hospital, between 25th and 29th September 2012.

    way’ when asked about the reason for moving, suggests the Latin Post.
    The town restaurants are excellent, but if you need something a bit more special then get in the family car and visit Mae
    D’Agua close to Buddha Eden or even Vila Infante near Obidos.
    You’ll end up with 15 to 30 years of living in a home you don’t want, if you’re not careful.

    wound up here Student projects exhibition at Barlett, UCL |.
    And I do have a couple of questions for you if you tend not to mind.
    Could it be just me or does it give the impression like some
    of the responses look like they are left by brain dead people?
    :-P And, if you are posting on additional online social sites, I’d like to follow anything new you have to
