‘Flow Fields’, the project developed in the PAACADEMY’s ‘Eco-Parametric Structures’ studio workshop by the talented students, Scott Duillet & Luiz Felipe Silveira is based on the concept of respectful coexistence between the structure and the site by collaborating nature as an inspiration.
The Eco-Parametric Structures workshop organized by PAACADEMY was held from 2nd March to the 13th April 2021 on an online platform. Studio Mamou-Mani is one of the studio workshops at the PAACADEMY with a focus on combining sustainability with parametric design. The studio with the 6 intriguing sessions lead by London based architect, Arthur Mamou-Mani and his team was articulated on the topic of wooden construction through computational design methods. The session focused on developing a parametric, modular and environmentally conscious system in an online studio through interactive workshops and discussions.

Natural obstructions such as trees and rocks govern openings to the ground and sky, allowing the users to witness the existing, and often overlooked, fields of natural elements and how responsive architecture can be. Due to its high flexibility and fast renewal capabilities, bamboo was the main resource used to materialize organic curves and achieve a low impact, clean construction process.
Using the function and its surroundings as parameters to derive form, the whole structure shapes itself according to the given site and boundaries. This kind of adaptability and scalability allows for different formations to emerge, all while keeping a similar, rationalized building process. The result is an open space pavilion that bends and collaborates with nature, offering an insight into the natural fields creating a sense of flow.
Arthur Mamou – Mani and his team from Mamou-Mani led 6 intriguing sessions with PAACADEMY on creating an ecological solution through computational design methods. The session focused on developing a parametric, modular and environmentally conscious system in an online studio through interactive workshops and discussions.
