algorithmic modeling for Rhino

join the competition / the retail space of the future

about a month ago I registered for a quite interesting competition. basically its about designing a strategy/process (not so much a distinct building) for the future adidas retail. you can find any relevant detail about it here.

the thing is that i didn't really start until now due to other issues and also because the guy I intended to do the competition with doesn't really have time now in the end.

because I still would like to do it somehow and working alone is not very motivating, I though I will ask here if somebody would be interested to join in.

the competition is addressed to students and young professionals (whatever this should mean) worldwide.

There are no costs beside the material for the submission it self (if this will really happen).

deadline is in about 4 weeks.

so if you're interested, don't hesitate to write me a message here on the forum. (I speak german, romanian, english and spanish)

if there will be more people willing to join in, please understand that I have to chose one, because working over distance with several people will turn out to complicated.

Ahh i like it, good angle! I was actually reading this yesterday:, which has uses the body scanning, modelling and 3d printing.

Yeh when I was thinking about it i couldn't get away from the slightly cliché online/offline approach. Which while it will be important, doesn't seem all that unique, could be a crowd pleaser though.

I will ponder it futher, i may have some time free up, one of my projects deadline is monday...

hy nick, i thought about an approach like shoes (and sport wear in general) will me be 3d printed (custom made) in the future so clients can have a custom design as well as shoes which are fit their physical premises in a better way. therefore the shop of the future should be more like a fab lab, where scans could be made, designs could be adapted, with the idea that the production process could be influenced in an interacting way. Also this online / offline is a big topic which i didn't really have a clue so far. but in general its all quite vague so far.

i thought of using tools like firefly and millipede - making some animations.

so if you change your mind or know somebody, let me know because i still didn't find anybody!

Hey Christian, I will tell you upfront that i cant join you, too many projects currently in progress. though the competition does sound pretty interesting. I was just curious to what your idea/concept was, as the future of retail. What direction you were thinking of exploring...
