Presentation #1:

Arthur Mamou-Mani is director of the award-winning architecture practice Mamou-Mani, specialising in a new kind of digitally designed and fabricated architecture. He is a lecturer at the University of Westminster, and has given numerous talks around the world on eco-parametric architectural practice.

Mamou-Mani’s team specialises in parametric architecture and the use of the Grasshopper plugin for Rhino is essential to their practice. The plugin eco-system has helped them to evolve designs based on rules and parameters, echoing natural processes. They continue to explore new technologies, such as the open-source Silkworm plugin for 3D Printing which Arthur developed with Adam Holloway.

In his presentation, Arthur will discuss how Mamou-Mani’s use of tools such as Silkworm, Karamba 3D and Intralattice were integral to the making of groundbreaking architectural projects around the world. He will touch upon his recent collaboration with Studio Precht to create ‘Sandwaves’, the world’s largest 3D printed installation made entirely from sand for Diriyah Season in 2019.

In 2019 Mamou-Mani also collaborated with fashion house COS to create ‘Conifera’ shown at the Salone del Mobile in Milan. Made from over 500 ‘biobricks’ utilising both Silkworm and Karamba, the installation is the world’s largest PLA 3D printed structure to date. This year saw Mamou-Mani design ‘Catharsis’ in V.R. – ‘an amphitheatre made of amphitheatres’ – that spearheaded Burning Man festival’s first ever virtual reality event held in the Alt Space metaverse.
