FEIDAD.ORG: The committee for the 2006 Far Eastern International Digital Architectural Design Award (The 2006 FEIDAD Award) has created this award to encourage the exploration and definition of architectural design in the digital electronic age.

THEVERYMANY - as a .net blog - is an open source and collaborative exploration platform investigating the field of computation and design. Proposed as a succesion of experiments via processes of precise indetermination using encoded custom tools (developped within rhinoscripting), theverymany.net is build as an non exhaustive library of computational tools. All the different renders presented are illustrating digital models which are 100% encoded/scripted; NO LINES ARE DRAFTED...

CODE AS MATERIAL - Sample codes and scripting tips'n tricks are proposed for theverymany.net users for hybridation, customization and uses. As within every bottom up processes and collective intelligence, feed back are highly welcome...


MARC FORNES - Architect DPLG - is the founder of THEVERYMANY, www.theverymany.net, a design studio and collaborative research forum engaging the field of architecture via encoded and explicit processes. In 2004 he graduated with a Master of Architecture and Urbanism from the Design Research Lab of the Architectural Association in London after having previously studied in France and Sweden. Marc’s work experience in La Reunion, France, and UK includes Zaha Hadid Architects, where he was the project architect, from competition to tender documentation, for an experimental Mediatheque in Pau. During his three years on this project he directed the material research and geometrical development for the largest self-supported carbon fibre shell to date. Marc has led workshops and appeared as a guest critic at the Architectural Association, The Royal College of Art, and the University of Pennsylvania. He continues developing his research and blog in New York City.
