The Protohouse project was developed in the Architectural Association School’s Design Research Lab within the ‘behavioral matter’ studio of Robert Stuart-Smith. The Protohouse investigated the architectural potential of the latest Selective Laser Sintering technologies, testing the boundaries of large scale 3D printing by designing with computer algorithms that micro-organize the printed material itself. Research prototypes were generously supported by Materialise, with additional support from VoxelJet, and Sirris.
Softkill Design is a collaboration between Nicholette Chan, Gilles Retsin, Aaron Silver and Sophia Tang. They are a London based team of architects and designers researching new methods of generative design for additive manufacturing. They specialise in 3d printed design and provide design consultancy for architecture, furniture, product design and fashion.
