This movie is a narrative transcription of one year of work of the new class “In Silico Building” in the Faculty of Architecture at the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL). It relates a methodology of taking material effects associated with the proper fabrication method as a starting point for architectural design and construction. The research on intricate relationships between material and machine, associated to a reflection on the assembly level but also at the functional one, envisions a new vocabulary for architectural elements and spaces.

The video will be shown in Video Panorama that will take place from 27th to 30th September 2012 in the Forum -1 of the Pompidou Center in Paris, as part of the Advances in Architectural Geometry 2012 Conference [aag12.architecturalgeometry.at/]
