Landscape architecture, public space improvements and environmental objects

pavilion Parametric Glacier With the development of science and understanding of the laws of nature, man has learned the art of interpretation. For the purposes of “environmental improvement” it allows to recreate artificial objects that simulate processes in nature. Parametric Glacier pavilion conceptually contains two opposites: “ice” as naturalness, expression of primeval, sincerity and “parametric” as a symbol of human interpretation, algorithmic thinking and order. It is pavilion that unifies architecture, light, sound and science. Natural processes are recreated with computer-generated form, organic polymer materiality, interactive sound installation and artificial light.
