The "crown" of the new iconic building at 10 Fenchurch Avenue
in downtown London, designed by Eric Parry Architects
, will be realized as a Closed Cavity Façade (CCF) by Josef Gartner GmbH
, as a sub-contractor of Gartner, was in charge of creating the highly detailed models and the complete manufacturing relevant information of all 1056 crown elements – all created with a custom plug-in for Rhino.

The Master Parametric Design in Architecture
is a unique opportunity to critically review computational design towards a more challenging and self-demanding commitment to environmental constraints.
It is organized divided into two independent postgraduate courses, which can be taken together to obtain the Master's degree, or separately.PG1: Digital Design and Fabrication
This course will give students the knowledge of parametric geometry, digital fabrication and contemporary architecture they need to develop the potential of parametric design. The course includes practical workshops on parametric software, geometry and numerical control machines, aimed at solving real problems in complex architectural design.PG2: Performative Parametric Design
This course will explore real applications through parametric design. The behavior of the objects designed are checked thoroughly, with the same rigor and requirements demanded of digital fabrication as those expected from traditional architecture. This module aims to create interaction and synergies between parametric design and the application of algorithms to other disciplines such as BIM, urban design, planning, construction, structures, installations, services and climate to obtain more efficient and sustainable results.If you enrol before June 30, you wil get a 10% discount!
