CoReFab combines three words/fields: Concepts + Representation + Fabrication. The book documents five completed projects by AEDS Ammar Eloueini designed and implemented between 2003-2005. The projects are here grouped for evident similarities as well as differences. They are similar in scale, budget, materials and fabrication. They are all designed for a short life-span and have a distinct familial look. Most importantly, they share a consistent research agenda in the use of certain materials, structural techniques and geometries. They differ in their wide-ranging purpose and institutional framework: they are commissioned by a variety of clients ranging from choreographers, fashion designers and art institutions to perform very different tasks.
Ammar Eloueini (born 1968), received a Master of Science in Advanced Architectural Design from Columbia University Graduate School of Architecture in 1995. Teaching at the Ecole d”Architecture Paris-Villemin since 1996, co-founder of the digit-all studio. Participated to the International Exhibition “Transarchitectures 02” launched in Paris in June 1997. Over the past three years, Ammar Eloueini produced projects that challenge traditional design processes. Integrating digital media to investigate new approaches, based on animation software and the use of computers as a design tool. Extending his activities in the theoretical field, he participated in various international ideas competitions, where a conceptual and projectual approach, based on dynamic, non linear systems, answering new architectural and urban complexities was tested. Winner of the Villa Medicis Hors les Murs (AFAA, French Ministry of Culture) in 1998, he is working on a research project (Living in Strereoreality). Other publications include a forthcoming book digital trilogy, from mass production to mass customization.
