-HONOURABLE MENTION of Non Architecture Award 2022 Competition | Category: Aspatial & Virtual


Here I am creating an intersection between material based research and algorithmic practice. Through which I aim to provide promising possibilities connecting the natural with the artificial.

My material Resin is a polymer mixing with organic compounds. In my initial encounters with the material I realised Resin has quick dry solution, fluidity ,high viscocity and its power to absorb heat. I used these elements to create the final unseen levels of resolutions and topological complexity into my utopia. The design process strikes a balance between predictable and unprecedented.In my final totem I wanted to address this notion through the algorithm of the material and its unprecedented construction approaches.

Using Vex algorithm we could determine the exact location, flow and intersection of the material and how it will make its journey on a large scale.We could modify the shape and its conditions using the density and the transparency levels of the material into these algorithms . My scale here as per the algorithm is 10×4 metres using only the stability and duability of Resin. The complex form is just an example of many iterations and possibilities that can be created using the same concentration and characteristics of the unpredictable material.

To conclude , Resin is a promising material and I am only amazed by its surprises that keeps coming in everyday. Once you accept and figure out a way around the material it is only genius to say the material has a very promising future both environmentally and aesthetically.

Intersection of material based research and algorithmic practice


Jury Comments

– Kuba Jekiel

It all started with a glitch – a poetic appraisal of making mistakes in the creative process mixed with knowledgable and precise research. An impressive combination of computational design with materiality, looking for the order in the chaos and the chaos in the order at the same time.


– Xiaoyang Fang

The combination of materials and algorithms makes abstraction concrete. We can’t see whether the crazy form comes from the hysteria of the program or the self-release of gravity. Architectural drawing makes order emerge from chaos, and rationality exists from madness.
