Biayna and her team chose a slope in Csórompuszta, because they wanted to know how to use the same geometric system of simple tiles in places of different surface and size. There are vertically placed sticks in the tiles which move freely to be able to adapt to the ground and the surface, just like plants adapt to the environment. Biayna used her previous works in the skateparks of Los Angeles in the planning of the curved architectural structure in a way that 15 people can use it at the same time. The lower levels of the installation can be used as places to sit, for those who want to sit alone there is place in the middle, while it is possible to walk to the top of the installation.
Forcefields installation aims at finding a balanced relationship between parametric design thinking and analogue fabrication techniques. The convergence of these two often conflicting tendencies –the ephemeral nature or the quickness of generative design and the permanence or slowness of construction- will encourage the integration of digital and human craft into nearseamless and active coexistence. The goal is to see the installation as a flexible system and to introduce parametric thinking to the fabrication process.
Biayna Bogosian is an architect and a computational designer interested in highly localized materialization processes that respond to data patterns. Focusing on the topics of geometric complexity, performance feedback and fabrication economy, she is researching various physical and non-physical input parameters as a way of adding information resolution to different forms of physical outputs. Biayna holds a Master of Science in Advanced Architectural Design from Columbia University (2010) and a Bachelor of Architecture from Woodbury University (2008). Biayna is a founding partner of Los Angeles based studio Somewhere Something focused on data driven virtual and built environments. The office sees human activity and behavior as an integrated part of the design process realized by advanced fabrication techniques. Since 2011, Biayna has taught digital media seminars and design studios at Columbia University GSAPP, USC School of Architecture, Woodbury University, Tongji University.
