The concept of ‘The Rise’ is the idea of a growing architecture. Like a bushm the installation has its own internal growth patterns that guide the material in a highly distributed aggregation of modules that keep branching off and multiplying. The installation looks at distributed systems as an alternative to traditional structural systems. Where contemporary design approaches in architecture have difficulties in conceptualising complex systems, we grow a multitude of intersecting members that together create a structural network system. In this vision, architecture is not a static, formalist proposition – instead, it continuously adapts to the dynamics of its surroundings while growing into form.

The 3d scan was made in the frame of the DURAAK project . DURAARK (Durable Architectural Knowledge) will tackle the challenge of building a secure and efficient long-term preservation solution for 3D architectural data. DURAARK is funded by the European Commission within the 7th Framework Programme (Grant Agreement no: 600908).
