South Korean Pavilion: Illuminating Cubes! At Expo 2020 Dubai

South Korean Pavilion

A stadium of masquerading lights flickers in an illuminating ambiance! The South Korean Pavilion, designed by Moon Hoon and Mooyuki, explicitly flashes in dazzling shades at the Expo 2020 Dubai. The design concept visualizes the desert sunrise and its rays reflecting upon many dew droplets on a desert flower. The flickering of lights imitates the card stunts of spectators at a soccer stadium, also amassing the vibe of a rock concert. The design well expresses the cohesive and spontaneous energy of Korean ness in the moments the pavilion partakes.

Masaryčka: A Modern Mixed-Use Development by Zaha Hadid Architects Takes Form

Masaryčka

When concepts, dreams, and visions take solid form, it knits a zeal of triumph. Masaryčka building presents one such iconic development convened by Zaha Hadid Architects in Prague. The construction has taken shape up to level three, with retail levels on the ground and first floors. The higher floors gather office spaces, cantilevered and terraced with roof gardens.

Prairie Cord: 3D Printed Ceramic Modular Blocks Weave an Arch Designed by Brian Peters

Prairie Cord

A latticed structure revels in a mirror-like pool, with admonishing beauty! A simple hemispherical curve weaves the Prairie Cord designed by Brian Peters. The designers showcased the project commissioned by Olbrich Botanical Gardens in Madison, Wisconsin. The artist interestingly envisaged a site-specific element that plays with light, shadow, and reflection during the day and night.

Computational Designer at Kinetica

Kinetica

Mexican expert complex geometry design fabricator, Kinetica, is looking for a full-time computational designer to join their office in Monterrey.

Firm: Kinetica
Website: www.kinetica.com.mx
Job Title: Computational Designer
Position: Computational Designer (full-time on-site)
Location: Monterrey, Mexico
Profile: Architect/Industrial Designer

Kinetica is looking for architects/industrial designers interested in computational design (parametric), digital fabrication, robotic manufacturing, and non-standard architectural projects. As a member of our Computational Design team, you will focus on the development of creative solutions for the fabrication of custom elements for High Profile Architectural projects around the world; your work spam will cover from conceptual exploration and 3d modeling to the development of custom algorithms for analysis, optimization, and automatization of fabrication schemes for complex architectural elements.

Kinetica’s Computational Design team is one of a kind among architectural fabricators and as such we understand that the profile we need for our team is complex and hard to find out of the box, that’s why we are looking for potentially more than experience; if you are interested in developing your 3d modeling skills, learning and applying computational design strategies through Grasshopper, Python and C#, and work with Digital Fabrication and Robotic Manufacturing tools Kinetica is the place for you.

You will be surrounded by an outstanding, highly creative team, full of young goal-oriented designers, in a relaxed and friendly environment where personal and professional growth is nourished and encouraged.

Hard Skills:

  • Professional working proficiency in English
  • Working proficiency in Spanish (desirable but not required)
  • Demonstrated proficiency in Rhinoceros 3d
  • Demonstrated proficiency in Grasshopper 3d
  • Python or C# programing in Grasshopper (desirable but not required)

Soft Skills:

  • Goal-oriented
  • Strong work ethic
  • Social skills and team player
  • Strong creative drive

Please send your CV and digital portfolio as a PDF (maximum 10MB, with your name on all the files, zip files will not be accepted) with an indication of your availability in your cover letter, to [email protected]

About Kinetica:

We believe that great building design tells a story and in order to achieve the greatest designs, you need a fabrication company that not only understands and appreciates the design process… but also the engineering requirements and has a process for testing and coming up with “new solutions” that add value and help you achieve those stories without straining the budget goals.

After years of compiling a multidisciplinary team with a wide scope of specialties as well as building complex projects on the largest scale in many countries of the world, we have completely focused our efforts on what we love most: Solving Architectural Design that has never been done before.

You’ll find our approach to complex geometry design fabrication is effective. Developed over the past years, it has helped us continually surprise our clients by coming up with different and innovative ways to not only better the design but also foresee and avoid costly fabrication and installation issues.

More specifically, we use the perfect blend of scientific architectural problem solving (design, materials, engineering, shopping, installation) and an interest in understanding the overall goal of the project to ensure the best results for our client possible.
