this blog is dedicated to the Bucky Lab from the TU Delft faculty of Architecture. Within the mastercourse we design, develop and at the end build architecture and building construction related prototypes. Its a "get your hands dirty" approach in which the students learn how to translate concepts from sketch into working prototypes. We try to live the spirit of buckminster fuller: what ever you can imagine, you can also build!
unfortunately I did not got an invitation to present next years Bucky Lab Design Studio's topic...
… they forgot to invite me, therefore there was also no presentation, but here a few points on the most fun course next year …
We will contribute to a stage for a musical - I will meet the director soon, but we are asked to contribute a design that suits their overall concept - have to figure out how to make it and then also build it.
he already send the following :
Imagine a Garden of Eden 2.0.
A hybrid paradise where nature and technology merged.
A place where we can re-start history, but now with the help of technological
solutions and interfaces.
What creatures, attributes, objects, machines and 'plants' can you imagine there?
How would animals, robots, Adam and Eve look like?
Trees, apples, snakes, fountains?
what utopian or dystopian solutions does technology have to offer to guilt, shame, hope, hate, pride
and - god forbid- even Love?
Its a bucky lab course, the full circle : design, engineer and built - in this case even more challenging because its bigger, for a real event and with a bigger budget …
Hope that answered your questions, if you like the bucky lab course, wanna design and build - that’s your course never heard about the Bucky Lab ...
