Kuber Patel Darwin Bucky Exhibition Gallery
Darwin Bucky Exhibition Gallery is Bronze Design Award winner in 2021 - 2022 Generative, Algorithmic and Parametric Design Award Category.
Darwin Bucky Exhibition Gallery

Bucky is a parametric dome tent anchored to the ground which is inspired from geodesic dome designed by Buckminster Fuller. The tanks are made of 1mm thick laser cut bent metal sheets and bolted together to create an isolated space without columns. Multiple blocks of Bucky can also be linked to create a Bucky cluster. It can be assembled or disassembled in few days for storage and can be transported via shipping container. Bucky was envisioned to be easy to carry around the globe. Bucky is a light weight structure. Its a flat pack structure which is made up of metal that makes it water tight.

Kuber Patel

Kuber is a graduate of the Architectural Association with a multidisciplinary practice having projects that spread across the globe. He is also a visiting faculty at CEPT University and the author of the book Algorithmic Thinking. Kuber was recently invited to work in the U.S. as an Individual with Extraordinary Ability or Achievement. He strives to achieve his goals by developing high-quality skillsets and sheer passion rather than through experience because of which he has been the youngest local architect of the World's Largest Cricket Stadium, the youngest faculty to lead a master studio, and the youngest to start his first project in 2010 much before his undergrad in 2013.

Kuber graduated [year March 2016] with Masters of Architecture in Emergent Technologies and Design from the Architectural Association School of Architecture, London, and has a total of 6+ years of global professional experience. In addition, he is also a visiting faculty at CEPT University and the author of the book 'Algorithmic Thinking- A parametric approach to problem-solving '. His most recent achievement includes being accepted to work in the U.S. as an Individual with Extraordinary Ability or Achievement. He strives to achieve his goals by developing high-quality skillsets and sheer passion rather than through experience because of which he has been the youngest local architect of the World's Largest Cricket Stadium, the youngest faculty to lead a master studio, and the youngest to start his first project in 2010 much before his undergrad in 2013. His skills work best in parametric modeling through algorithmic design techniques using advanced computational tools and digital fabrication. Kuber hopes to add more value to design by introducing a more data-driven process through computer science, mathematical thinking, and philosophy. As we live in a post-digital world, this data, if given the right manifestation, can lead to a well-informed architecture representing a better reality and a responsive future. He would like to add to his studio a more concise approach to the translation process of architectural representation rather than the invention of a new architecture. Kuber has been practicing Architecture since 2013 soon after his graduation working on projects in USA, UK & India. He always plays a lead and critical role in all the projects he gets involved. He has worked on stadiums, hotels, museums, temporary structures, pavilions, retail, residential, art installation, housing, mixed-use, commercial and corporate buildings. Kuber has been extensively published in an article titled use of glass in bridges by Surface Reporter due to his innovative use of glass on facades. He also gets frequently invited as a Jury panel by top-ranking universities. One of his beloved projects is Bucky, the first of its kind largest Prefabricated modular traveling gallery developed entirely using a parametric workflow. One of his innovative academic projects 'The Twist' pavilion received a small project award for its innovative use of plywood. In the future, he wishes to pursue his Ph.D. in Architectured materials through selective laser sintering techniques. Overall, his architectural style mostly revolves around Performance orientated design that has a strong response to material, structural, social, and environmental behavior. Kuber's graduate thesis reflects on a similar system using agent-based methods to work on developing a flood resilient system that has a coherent spatial configuration between climate and the socio-economic fabric of informal settlements in an urban context.
