Approxymotion is research project focusing on motion based forming. Its an attempt to apply the logic of digital design into the physical space.
Traditionally in architecture forms are transferred from paper/virtual space to building through fixed shaped moulds or as an assembly of many elements. My goal was to set the mould into motion, while maintaining the parametric nature inherited from the digital model. The result is a motion-form that computes between the initial motion input, the built geometry and its material properties.

Continuous Crossing is an ongoing research project in utilization of composite materials for architectural application. Inspired by the workflow and material application of the sailing industry(North Sails), our team is focusing on hybridizing the performative and aesthetic aspects of composite materials.

Seminar Title: Testa ESTm Vertical Fall 2011 ‘Real-Time’
Instructor: Peter Testa
Research Fellows: Brandon Kruysman, Jonathan Proto, AT: Jonathon Stahl
This project subsists on the translational discrepancies that arise during interplay between an excessively controlled but exceedingly irresolute digital environment and its materialization into the reality of physical space. sPhysical seeks the epitome of synthesizing digital tools with physical expression by re-conceptualizing material design processes and applications in the field of architecture.
