We also look at Generative Adversarial Networks (GAN), the architecture discipline that has been observing with increased interest how this Machine Learning method can be used creatively to explore design variations.
Marcela Spadaro: Naaro
Naaro believes that every architectural project is unique and adapts their creative approach and storytelling techniques to the distinctiveness of each individual project to bring out its characteristics at its best. This could be either through striking photography or moving images or through a combination of both. The studio's vision is the result of founders Freya Najade and Marcela Spadaro's combined expertise. Freya is an award-winning photographer whose strength lies within the documentation of the social and built environment. Marcela trained as an architect and prior to co-founding Naaro, worked for over 10 years at the forefront of innovative architecture with Zaha Hadid Architects. Freya and Marcela's complementary skills and unique combination of backgrounds allow them to approach each project in new creative multifaceted ways.
Publishers & Publications featuring Naaro's photographs include: The New York
Times, Der Spiegel, Thames & Hudson, Phaidon, Domus, Wallpaper, ICON, Architectural Digest, GA, Elle Decoration & Surface Magazine, among others.
Thomas Bagnoli: Zaha Hadid Architects
Thomas is interested in design modelling and 3D sculpting for complex geometry and soft materials.
He is focused on his personal research from a couple of years on digital fabrication and material experimentation blending it with different fields and personal interests like design, architecture, art, music, photography and movies. Thomas is fascinated by the relationship between the human experience within architecture spaces and how materiality is involved whenever we experience those spaces through our senses. But mostly how materiality can be the main factor of the design approach and how it can affect the body.
