3D augmented reality models of key Grimshaw Architects projects brought to life in new exhibition
Andrew Whalley, Deputy Chairman of Grimshaw Architects, opens the exhibition in Singapore.
SINGAPORE.- Grimshaw Architects announced the opening of Equation, the first exhibition of the practice’s work in Asia. The exhibition runs from 20th February until 15th March at the Urban Redevelopment Authority in Singapore.

Equation explores how the natural environment provides inspiration for innovative architectural projects around the world. These projects adopt biomimicry for greater efficiency, acknowledge the importance of connecting building users to nature and work to harness natural systems which ensure that buildings conserve and replenish natural resources.

A highlight of the exhibition is a series of 3D augmented reality models of several key Grimshaw projects which can brought to life by innovative technology that utilises smart phones and tablet computers. Using these devices, visitors can view 3D models and move about in real time.

Equation marks the sixth major exhibition of work from Grimshaw. It is presented as a series of illuminated light tables with mixed-media content including sketches, drawings, photographs and videos that portray the process behind Grimshaw’s seminal designs and completed buildings.

Grimshaw was founded by Sir Nicholas Grimshaw in 1980. The practice became a Partnership in 2007 and operates worldwide, with offices in New York, London, Doha, Melbourne and Sydney employing over 300 staff. Grimshaw‘s international portfolio covers all major sectors, and has been honoured with over 200 international design awards.

Grimshaw has a history of creating thoughtful exhibitions that bring these innovative projects to life. Previous exhibitions include Fusion, an exhibition of Grimshaw’s industrial design work, which opened in 1998 and was shown in 7 countries in Europe and North America, and Equilibrium, which was launched at the Design Museum in London in 2000.

The practice is dedicated to the deepest level of involvement in the design of their buildings in order to deliver projects that meet the highest possible standards of excellence. The firm’s work is characterised by strong conceptual legibility, innovation and a rigorous approach to detailing, all underpinned by the principles of humane, enduring and sustainable design.
