Final review of the Emergent Density module. Friday 20th of July 2007:
The last weeks of work culminated in the final review. The board of critics included Oliver Bertram, head of the company Different Futures and Assistant at Greg Lynns studio of the Angewandte and Rainer Zettl, Assistant at W.D. Prix studio and main coordinator of Urban Strategies. The allover quality of the body of work was appreciated by the board, and some good advises were given about possible further proceedings with the learnt design strategies. It was interesting to see that despite the general design strategy the final results formed a variety of possible solutions. Some projects approched the problem by creating an allover connected architectural entity. Other approaches included the dissolving of mass in fibrous entities, and the creation of cellular aggregations.
