Mill from the River

The Mill is a conceptual architecture project to showcase MP Lighting’s LED products. The concept is an abandoned mill that is re-claimed to become a theater and tapis bar. With the architectural concept, I wanted to retain the focus on the mill building. I also wanted to keep the architecture grounded in the roots of the mill’s industrial heart and history. I thought the best way to achieve this was to slip a glass barn over the top of the old mill.  —Chris Kowal

Parametric Architecture

A couple of Parametric Architecture projects. The diagrams are those which generate the form, this diagram (algorithm) is called “definition” and is a series of algorithms that generate the geometry (generative design) based on certain parameters (parametric design) that can be updated at “real time” generating an “x” amount of different geometries, the “parameters” are the bars that are at the beginning of the definition.  —Angel Quintana

Zabeel Tower

This project was my entry to the 2009 edition of Thyssen Krupp international competition. The aim was to design an iconic tower located in the Zabeel Park in Dubai. The main feature of the tower lies in its envelope. It is made of hundreds of sails cut in a special fabric that captures water from dew. This is possible because all these sails can unfold at night to collect water from dew. They then collapse during the day, providing an efficient protection against the sun.  —Mekene Images

Mechanical Sleep

My personal work “Mechanical sleep”. Gears, as people, sleep and have dreams. But soon the mechanics will enter, will wake them. They will engage steam coppers and the big work will begin! The time of the Hadron Collider it’s approaching..  —Vladimir Kufeld


I had this idea about creating this industrial abandoned place for a while and photographed many of those places for years and wanted to try to create one of those in 3d from sketch. This is the result, i just modeled this rough concrete building, it was a bit inspired by piranesi’s prisons, subject I’ve deeply studied in architecture school and by some german old factories that i visited in Essen.  —Christopher Malheiros
