Lest week we held a lecture for our friends at Reflex Arkitekter. Kayrokh was talking about digital design methodology in architectural practice and the history of CAD/CAM developments.
As a part of the lecture Kay was demonstrating some hands-on examples of Grasshopper scripts with direct application in architectural practice.
Another part of the lecture was about Sketchpad, the first CAD system developed back in 1963 by Ivan Sutherland at MIT Lincoln Labs. It’s also the first program which featured graphical user interface and the first object oriented program ever made.
Taking advantage of the power of Computational Design is growing with a fast pace in architecture and urban planning fields. If you want to get an introduction about this amazing filed, let us know and we will gladly book a presentation with you.
The interest for mass timber construction in general, and Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) in particular, has been intensified by the ever-looming threat of climate change. Urged on by a lack of standards and the slow-moving wheels of the Swedish building industry we decided to take matters into our own hands. We are proud to announce that this effort has now resulted in a first iteration of resources to be used by architects in early phases of CLT-design - a CLT handbook, a Grasshopper definition and a Revit library/template file
The architectural corps has been the punching bag in the public debate about style and aesthetics. Thus far we have taken a quiet and passive stance on the issue, and have not participated to the extent we can and should. Sometimes out of strategic reasons and so as not to step on any "political toes". This Swedish language article written by Kayrokh is an attempt to nuance the polarized debate and explain to the public why they have taken the wrong people as hostages.

We are proud to announce that our CEO has participated in Architects Sweden's annual industry report where he contributed with a chapter discussing integration issues and why diversity is to be pursued. The text is both personal and universal, weaving together his perspectives as a foreign-born architect as well as an employer. A very readable article for everyone, regardless of background and situation! Scroll down for the Swedish language article in its entirety.
Katarina Andersson has written a highly interesting article published in the Swedish language news magazine Syre for which she, among others, interviewed our CEO Kayrokh Moattar. The article explores the relationship between the whiteness norm of the Swedish architecural world and the often uniform and excluding nature of its output.
