Hanging Eco-Gardens is an Eco-Parametric structure designed by three talented students Ara Keuroghlian, Luis Lopez, Yervant Megurditchian, as part of the PAACADEMY’s ‘Eco-Parametric Structures’ studio workshop with Arthur Mamou-Mani.

In the Form Finding exploration of the project, students look for Harmony between architecture & nature to achieve a merger between Form and the Materiality and integration of its Natural Context. The goal was to bring nature back to the city and raise ecological awareness by activating an underutilized urban space. Above all, the students strive to create an eco-structure that will evoke human connection and awaken a sense of play.

The Eco-Parametric Structures workshop organized by PAACADEMY was held from 2nd March to 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.

One of the inspirations of the project is biomimicry. Biomimicry in Architecture studies nature and emulates forms, processes, systems, and strategies to solve human problems to create ecological standards & sustainable design solutions.

Another inspiration for the project is Buckminster Fuller’s tessellation techniques for dome geometry. They were one of the first attempts to integrate bionics into architectural design.

By incorporating emerging technologies and tools, such as parametric, algorithmic, and generative design methods, students could move beyond mimicry of geometry and order and into enhancing environmental, structural, and material performance by learning from the mechanisms and properties found in nature.
