Probobli Boboli | Florence, Italy | Unit 21 | 2023 This project explores the potential of using probabilistic simulations as part of a creative process for design, rather than simply a tool for validation, to further an understanding of the implications for designing with uncertainty at each step of the process. The exploration emerged from a historical study of the banks, libraries and fountains of Florence, looking at them as

Cross-Modal Compositions | Isle of Portland, UK | Unit 21 | 2022 Awarded the Fitzroy Robinson Drawing Prize rolandas.markevicius.20@ucl.ac.uk The developments in deep neural networks force us to reconsider the role of references. The project frames this statement through the challenge of establishing synaesthetic links between architecture and music suggesting that the new instruments offered by machine learning allow designers to play with abstract features systematically. The project proposes a

A Chimeric Nursery | London, UK | Unit 21 | 2022 Awarded the Year 3 Portfolio Prize george.neyroud.19@ucl.ac.uk In a disagreement over the preservation of Christ church Spitalfields a newly designed and built nursery is now the subject of demolition. My project explores new grounds for collaborative design by using machine learning to generate bespoke plans within a new site, St George in the east, with the hope of appeasing

Algorithmic Compositions In Venice | Venice, Italy | Unit 21 | 2020 Awarded Distinction for Design & Distinction for Thesis Click to see Thesis Click to see 4th year work This project is an investigation into using Image-to-Image translation algorithms to create architectural design. This process uses hundreds of paired digital images as training for an algorithm to learn information about the chosen input. My project is based in Venice
