Canopy Design – Digital Architectural Lab

Computational design is always an interesting thing to see implemented in small scale designs, especially those at the human scale.  Maybe it’s the juxtaposition of a digital means of creation with the cruder physical world.  This project is a great example of that, a computationally designed bench and shade, done at the Digital Architectural Lab, sponsored by the Hunan University SoA.  The DAL is a workshop that brings together prominent architects in the computation field with students. This work done under the supervision of a few architects from Zaha Hadid’s office and UNstudio.
