Andrew Kudless: Cell

Installation by materialsystems.org from May 8 - May 26
May 7, 2006 - 8:00pm to May 25, 2006 - 8:00pm

The Knowlton School of Architecture Banvard Gallery will be featuring the work of materialsystems.org from Monday, May 8 to Friday, May 26 with an opening reception on May 8 at 6pm. The exhibition, titled “Cell”, explores emerging techniques in architecture through projects using cellular aggregation, flexible formworks, and interactive installation technologies.

Established in 2004 by Andrew Kudless, materialsystems.org is an architectural design studio that explores the emergent relationships between architecture, engineering, biology, and computation. Based on the idea that architecture can be understood as a material body with its own intrinsic and extrinsic forces relating to form, growth, and behavior, the studio investigates methodologies of performative integration through geometric and material differentiation. The studio’s work ranges from speculative and built projects to the crafting of new tools which facilitate an interdisciplinary approach to the design and fabrication of architecture.

Andrew Kudless is an architect based in Columbus, Ohio where he is the recipient of the 2005-2006 LeFevre Fellowship for Emerging Practitioners at the Ohio State University Knowlton School of Architecture. In addition to his design studios at Ohio State, he has taught workshops in design, computation, and fabrication at the Architectural Association, Yale University, Ball State University and Rice University. He gained an MA with distinction from the Architectural Association’s Emergent Technologies and Design graduate program and a MArch with honors from the Tulane University School of Architecture. In 2004 he was the recipient of a Design Merit Award in the Far Eastern International Digital Architecture Design (FEIDAD) competition and in 1998 he was awarded a Fulbright Fellowship to research architectural design and urbanism in the Kansai region of Japan. He has worked as a designer for Allied Works Architecture in Portland and New York and as a digital design, modeling, and fabrication consultant for Expedition Engineering in London.
