The latest exhibition at the Tin Sheds Gallery,Disparallel Spaces, marks the beginning of interdisciplinary design within the Faculty of Architecture, Design and Planning.
An architectural design exhibition showcasing creative digital design techniques, it explores how the coupling of architectural design with digital modelling and fabrication methods allows for a deeper comprehension and experience of space and form.
Students of the Bachelor of Architecture program present their new stream of contempo works, and innovativeengagement with architecture, design, art, and technology.
Fuelled by the theme "Cliff Hanger", the designers propose unconventional architectural solutions that challenge and defy gravity, dimension, space, and volume in unprecedented ways. These novel designs are created with the freedom of innovation, interpretation, and definition without boundaries.
The notion of non-conformity forms the core of the collection of works, held together by the idea of spatial concepts in disparallel configurations and unconventional methods in the process of design.
Creative use of computer-aided architectural design and modelling tools, as well as other types of digital media, drives the works in their spatial and visual qualities. Knowledgeable employment of these tools in sophisticated and unorthodox ways is exhibited in the collection.
Disparallel Spaces confronts problems in architectural design from a diversity of multi-faceted and eccentric approaches, setting the trend for novel viewpoints of innovation in spatial design, and a unique opportunity to glance into the digitalised future in the field of architecture.
The exhibition is curated by Damien Butler, Patrick Keane, Zayad Motlib, and Dr Marc Aurel Schnabel.
