Under the title ‘Grown in Britain & Northern Ireland’, the UK’s response to the Milan Expo’s theme ‘Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life’ is a 1,910 square metre Pavilion boasting an impressive design and complex structure, successfully delivered by creative construction and manufacturing company Stage One.(More)
In this parametric design video designer Rick Tegelaar explains how the Meshmatics Chandelier he developed at university became a Moooi product in this movie in our Design Dreams series for the Dutch brand. Launched by Moooi at Milan design week in 2017, Tegelaar’s Meshmatics Chandelier is made from three concentric, inverted wire-mesh domes of different diameters and heights.
Dutch designer Lilian van Daal claims 3D-printing can replace traditional upholstery techniques to produce spongy-surfaced furniture in this parametric design movie filmed in Eindhoven. Van Daal is investigating alternative production methods for upholstered furniture, which is usually very resource-intensive to make

In the fall 2015, for exploring the notion of three-dimensional structures, students in freshman design studios in Department of Architecture at Texas A&M University were asked to design Surface Active Arches by using plywood.
Visitors can now scale British designer Thomas Heatherwick’s giant honeycomb-like sculpture at New York’s Hudson Yards, which has opened along with the other public spaces at the vast West Side development. Temporarily known as Vessel, the Heatherwick Studio-designed structure is welcoming the first visitors to climb its 154 staircases.
For the 100th anniversary celebration of the BMW Group, media artist Andree Verleger has created the worlds largest kinetic sphere sculpture. “The Bird” filled the entire infield of the Olympic Hall in Munich and lent Verleger’s visually stunning staging a spectacular high point.
This private astronomical observatory is located on a remote mountain summit in central New Hampshire. The site is characterized by granite outcroppings and is situated at the center of a three-mile radius “dark” landscape with very little light pollution to obstruct astronomical viewing.
