Algorithmic and parametric architecture create an inviting and innovative space
Lemay + Toker’s utilization of parametric design technologies and non-permanent building materials mirror Vignettes YEG’s focus on adaptive re-use projects. The design transforms a barren space into a functional and creative environment. After the event the materials can be disassembled and reused in different locations, with their physical dimensions shifting to meet the needs of the new space, creating an adaptive project that is completely reusable. This design methodology reflects Lemay+Toker’s values of innovative and sustainable design.
An interdisciplinary event located in Edmonton, the Vignettes YEG festival provides an important platform to utilize new technologies and innovative design practices. Lemay+Toker’s submission highlighted how parametric design and unconventional building materials can work in conjunction to create versatile and flexible spaces. The festival provides a space for designers to connect, engage, and grow the design community in Canada. Through the work of participants, sponsors and community partners, VignettesYEG produces exceptional environments that engage the visitor in collaborative and interesting ways. This year’s submission integrated technology, innovation and sustainable design to create an adaptive re-use project that can be enjoyed, deconstructed, and reused in other spaces.
