Adapted from a white paper published by Dassault Systèmes, this article looks at how CO Architects leverages generative design tools for continuous architectural design and engineering innovations.
CO Architects continues to investigate technologies that support collaborative and informed decision making through the client’s view. Learn how CO pushes boundaries by mixing the physical and virtual. In this evolved iteration, mixed reality operating rooms showcase user interaction with physical scale models tracked by cameras using Computer Vision.
The International Interior Design Association (IIDA) Southern California Chapter throws one of the design industry’s most exciting events in Los Angeles – Haunt Couture – and CO Architects participated in this year’s event for the first time! CO’s team of Dimitra Dorbacopoulos, Sona Aroush, Teck Chan, Vanessa Cartagena, Alison Martin and James Simeo had a spooky good time representing Team Gemini.
Last week, CO celebrated the grand opening of the new lobby for the UCLA La Kretz Botany Building. The reimagined lobby space creates sight lines to the adjacent garden and brings to life a mosaic design from the building’s original architect, Paul Williams.The full renovation project will consolidate much of the EEB department within the Botany Building and make departmental research and teaching visible to the greater UCLA community.
For several years now, CO has focused on facilitating more informed decision making with our clients through custom virtual reality (VR) experiences. As with every new technology, there were challenges to solve along the way. Learn how CO’s digital design and technology team created customized solutions for interactive virtual environments.
Tata Hall for the Sciences is a new state of the art research and teaching laboratory at UC San Diego. Together with our engineers, CO Architects developed energy conservation strategies to reduce the building’s overall energy consumption. As laboratories are one of the most energy intensive building types – and are operational 24 hours a day – efficiencies can yield huge reductions in the building’s carbon footprint.
