AJ - Absolute Joint System is the only non-welded round pipe structural stainless system in the world. It provides the architect with a sculpting tool (a Grasshopper customization) that delivers designs that keep pace with the clients imagination. It allows for free-form single and double layer geometries creating remarkable structural transparency. AJ - Absolute Joint System is proud to sponsor ACADIA 2014 and will be at the event exhibiting its products. The ACADIA 2014: DESIGN AGENCY conference will be held in Los Angeles, California at the USC School of Architecture on October 23-25, 2014. DESIGN AGENCY will bring together the spectrum of research and creative practice currently occurring within the ACADIA community through the combined support of the research networks of the University of Southern California, University of California Los Angeles and Southern California Institute of Architecture. Questions the capacity for computation to inform or challenge traditional design processes; computation as design operation - the capacity, condition, or state of acting or of exerting power, and/or computation as design instrumentality - the design mechanism through which power is exerted or an end is achieved.
