“FABberz is a community whose principle objective is to spread knowledge about the fabrication and customization of designs. The goal of the FABberz project is to allow the ENTIRE world to become a fabber. How? Bringing the creative processes of design and fabrication directly into the hands of the public.”
For the first phase of the project, FABberz (www.fabberz.com) in collaboration with LaN (www.livearchitecture.net), are organizing a workshop in Rio de Janeiro, whose main objective is to familiarize the participants with digital fabrication techniques and parametric design tools. The great opportunity for innovation that the 2016 Olympics are offering to Rio de Janeiro, is also providing a fertile soil for architectural experimentation. Giving access to the brazilian students of architecture to innovative means of architectural design can give a great push in the improvement of the living conditions in Brazil. Main goal of the workshop will be to implement sustainable digital manufacturing processes in the favela neighborhoods of Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paolo through active participation, not only of the students, but also of the local residents.
Through KICKSTARTER you can support financially FABberz initiative and help them spread the knowledge about digital fabrication and massive customization. Moreover you will become part of a the FABberz community and according to your pledge you will be able to get a reward/present from the workshops products. Check it out!Read More »

In connection with the international climate summit COP15 in Copenhagen, the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, School of Architecture’s Institute of Technology and Institute of Planning have joined forces with architect Philippe Rahm, researchers and students to bring into focus the role of architecture in the ongoing climate debate.
The exhibit Climate and Architecture is a sensuous, poetic and architectonic contribution to the ongoing climate debate, which is currently dominating the public domain.
The challenges that the built environment is facing are extensive, but there are both competences and solution models hidden in cultural patterns and behaviors, in lived-in environments and building cultures, which can overcome such challenges. This transition will create and recreate qualities of life, and lead to better buildings and cities.
The goal is to recall memories of cultural characteristics in life and spatiality, of the significance of fundamental values to our behavior and to a physical, planning oriented and architectonic framework.
The message is clear and simple, yet, at the same time, immensely intrusive. This exhibit attempts to communicate this message, and is intended to be an eye-opener and provide food for thought.

Part gypsy wagon, part RV trailer, and all aerodynamic eco-capsule, this mobile modern living structure is compact, built from environmentally friendly materials, and self-sufficient in terms of energy, water and waste.
Nice Architects‘ Rolling Stones capsules are inspired by gypsy wagons, which served as both living quarters and backdrops for gypsies work as entertainers. The unit is completely mobile when towed behind a vehicle, and when stationary it can be expanded to form an open air studio space or even a mobile stage. Its round shape is meant to resemble a rock in a meadow, and the project blends into its natural surroundings through the use of a reflective surface made from recycled aluminum can tiles. The rest of the structure is constructed from locally sourced wood and OSB panels.
Each unit runs 270 sq feet and is designed to accommodate 2 people comfortably, although 6 people could stay in it if necessary. There is a bedroom with a double bed and closet, a bathroom with a toilet, shower and sink, and as a living room with a kitchenette. A reservoir on top of the capsule is used to collect rainwater and can serve as an emergency sleeping space.
The units are designed to survive independent of outside amenities, and each one comes equipped with either a solar system or wind turbine mounted on top. Below the floor of the unit are two reservoirs for clean water and grey water, which can be used for toilet flushing. A composting toilet takes care of solid waste, and an electric heater provides both heat for the unit and hot water. All in all, it’s a pretty cute and compact little unit – almost like an Airstream that has been hacked and rebuilt by gypsy rock and roll musicians.Read More »
