Repeat


We are pleased to announce the winners to the TEX-FAB REPEAT Digital Fabrication Competition. We received a total of 73 entries from across the globe representing 18 countries on 5 continents. The jury consisting of Patrik Schumacher, Marc Fornes, Lisa Iwamoto, Chris Lasch and Blair Satterfield conferred and decided that the winning project that will be built for the TEX-FAB Event in Houston in February 2011. Of all the entries the Jury selected 1 Winner, 4 Runners-Up and 7 Honorable Mentions which will be exhibited along side the winner. Along with its aesthetic beauty, technical superiority and elegance of detailing, the proposal was chosen because it employs structural robustness, material efficiency and an inherent logic of assembly. A minimal periodic surface structure is created with the repetition of only 16 different components. A macro-scaled modular cellular pattern emerges through symmetry that is infinitely expandable and open-ended while becoming differentiated at its edges.

Minimal Complexity by Vlad Tenu
TEX-FAB invited five leading figures in the world of digital fabrication and parametric design to jury the competition with a global understanding and presence within the digital design and fabrication communities. Our goal was to enable the role of digital fabrication and parametric design at the speculative level.
The jury conferred and selected 1 Winner, which is highlighted above, 4 Runners-Up and 7 Honorable Mentions which will be exhibited along side the winner at the REPEAT exhibition in Houston, coinciding with TEX-FAB 2 event.
We received a total of 73 entries from across the globe representing 18 countries on 5 continents. Below you will find the entire collection of submitted work, which you can view at a higher resolution once you click on the thumbnail.
