AA DRL Cellular Automata Workshop. Computational Architecture

computational architecture - cellular automata aadrl

Computational / parametric architecture stays very close to contemporary theory of algorithms. We have already implemented cellular automata and particularly game of life in architectural project Fashion Design Museum in Kyiv, 2009. Current project designed within the Architectural Association (AADRL) was aimed to go deeply into cellular automata theory and practice and to define the strategies of control the self-organizing system and to find the directions of usage in architectural design. Implementation of the algorithm for space tessellated into truncated octahedrons instead of usual cubic voxels also became a contribution into cellular automata research.


Octopus Tentacles. Interior design Kyiv

interior design kyiv - parametric architecture

Interior design of two-bedroom apartment in Kyiv, 69B Irpinska. Contemporary interior has a series of innovations by using methods of computational / parametric architecture, including the fact that for the first time in Ukrainian interior design practice we used 5-axis CNC milling machine for manufacturing panels with different curvature and bar counter for bottles of wine in apartment’s open space.


AADRL Material Workshop. Volume. Computing Without Computers

aadrl material workshop - spyropoulos studio

AADRL material workshop [part of 2013-15 MArch course] was related to material tension/compression experimentations with lycra as an envelope and plaster as a filing substance resulting in natural minimal surfaces and volumes respectively. Specific agenda was directed towards volumetric modular structure creation, which hence had to be cast in one turn as a solid assembly.

Magnetic field 2.0. Apartment design in Kyiv

Electromagnetic fields have already occupied a prominent place in computational architecture theory and have been used in one of our previous projects. Resumption of this theme aimed to make a wider research of the topic and variations of its implementation in design.


Kyiv Passanger Train Depot Renovation. Parametric Architecture

kyiv pasazhyrskyi depot - renovation project

Parametric architecture makes understanding of complicated processes easier. Kyiv Passenger Train depot is a huge area that can and should be used today for the Kiev benefit. In addition to converting the space that is now used inefficiently, into the favorite leisure place for urban residents, the project pursues a second very important purpose – to connect Chokolivka and Polytechnic Institute neighborhoods that are now cut apart, belonging to the Shevchenkivskyi and Solomianskyi Kyiv districts. Pedestrian access will allow direct communication, while bike paths set arrangement will rise bicyclization of the capital on a new level, creating a strong local center of health and ecology.


Apartment design in Comfort Town. Rules of Growth

comfort town apartment design in kyiv

Comfort Town is a residential complex in Kyiv with a large and active community. Here, in Comfort Town, we had a chance to develop a two room apartment design. By agreement with the client it transformed into studio with a separate bedroom. Our studio is interested in working with small area, as the problem of small apartment design turns out more attractive than large one, it becomes a challenge to analytical and artistic abilities of architects to put everything compactly and correctly in a modest area.

Magnetic Field. Living Interior in Kyiv

Another parametric design apartment in Kyiv is closely related to the study of the phenomenon of electromagnetic fields that have shaped the image of apartment and inhaled fresh algorithmic design in it. The interior is located in Kyiv on the Urlivska street on Pozniaky.

NAME: Magnetic field
WORK NAME: Urlivska / url
LOCATION: Urlivska str., Kyiv, Ukraine
AREA: 100 m2
DATE: 2011-2012
PROGRAM: Studio apartment with two bedrooms
CLIENT: Private
ARCHITECT: Dmytro Aranchii Architects
PROJECT TEAM: Dmytro Aranchii, Viacheslav Kyrpach

Apartment for Urlivska – a practical implementation of the theory of parametric architecture, follows our previous project Octopus tentacles. Open Space combines living room with kitchen and dining area. In the system of connected spaces kitchen island plays a separation role, especially between cooking and dining areas. Islet emphasizes the freely-based hood that forms the visual vertical axis around which transits occur.
Breaking the wall between the living room and the child room allowed placing a bed without losing an area for child`s activities. At the same time in open space it enabled arrangement of storage for master’s wine collection.

Parametric curves also took part in Magnetic Field morphogenesis, but unlike our project Apartment for Classmate, where lines influenced modular formation of individual elements of the interior. In Magnetic Field lines create the fundamental geometry accented on the rooms’ ceilings. Light stripes serve two purposes:
1. Compensation of missing daylight during the night
2. The formation of smooth transits between rooms
Therefore LED stripes lights (purchase of which is investment in efficient energy consumption) have their origin in the window or door openings.

Young ukrainian architectural studio Dmytro Aranchii Architects was published on Archdaily with competition project Culture Space on Andriivskyi Descent.
For now our Kyiv based architectural parametric practice entered into the number of few domestic workshops, who represent Ukraine on well-known international specialized resource.

Kyiv Culture Space on Andriivskyi Descent Architectural Concept

ukrainian contemporary architecture in kyiv, ansriivskyi

The competition for young architects on the Andriivskyi descent aimed to create an architectural concept of Yunist factory former site development, out of 1 hectare the competition terms determined the cultural space as 10-15 per cent of the area linked to the Andriivskyi descent, and the rest of it was for commercial use. The competiton on the Andriivskyi provided the design of multifunctional cultural space with integrated chamber music hall.


Giant’s Wall

parametric design of room in moscow

Giant’s Wall is the project of multifunctional room in Moscow flat, designed on principles of algorithmic design and parametric architecture. Interiors include in itself the most important element – the wall, around which history of geometry and morphogenesis, functions, processes and scenarios of inhabitants’s behavior unrolls. Room can be a living room, bedroom or, dining room, if needed, because it has folding-sofa transformer-table. Giant’s wall is the room design in which minimalistic and pure-form things combines into non-standard puzzle obeying the rule of use and expedience.
