We are excited to learn that Rajaa Issa, our developer of PanelingTools for Rhino and Grasshopper, has been given the DigitalFUTURES Coding Award 2021.
This award is given to a digital tool that revolutionizes architectural research, practice, or education by offering an advanced thinking paradigm and workflow.
PanelingTools is widely used to rationalize freeform surfaces and create paneling solutions, from concept to fabrication.
You can hear Rajaa in a video describing the history, concept, and development behind PanelingTools.
DigitalFUTURES is an educational initiative that organizes workshops, lectures, conferences, exhibitions, book publications, a peer-reviewed journal, and an international PhD program. While emphasizing the latest computational design and fabrication technologies, they also address education’s broader ethical and social education issues by providing an ever- growing repository of knowledge accessible for everyone.
