Ballinger presents “Tessellations in Architecture – A Design Dialogue”

Ballinger hosted a design dialogue on tessellations in architecture, from theoretical mathematical concepts, to their application in architectural and interior design, to practical considerations related to production and installation. Ballinger architect and associate Andrew Sniderman, AIA shared his research into tessellations and his definition of a new system related to mathematical dissections, called a dissection tiling system. Chris Stulpin, Chief Creative Officer for Tarkett North America, shared a case study of translating a tessellation concept into a sustainable product that gives designers options while reducing waste.

The event was part of DesignPhiladelphia, the signature event of the Philadelphia Center for Architecture, and the oldest design event of its kind in the country. The annual festival showcases the work of practicing architects, designers, and creative professionals.

At Ballinger, Andrew Sniderman has worked on projects for Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and American University. He recently presented his research on tessellations at the Bridges Conference, an annual conference on mathematical connections in art, music, architecture, education, and culture.

Chris Stulpin is the Chief Creative Officer for Tarkett North America, where he leads the design, product management, marketing and project management teams, driving the company’s innovation roadmap and customer experience journey.

Ballinger Presents at Bridges Interdisciplinary Art and Mathematics Conference

Ballinger associate Andrew Sniderman, AIA gave a presentation at the 2018 Bridges Conference in Stockholm, Sweden. He demonstrated a new type of system related to mathematical dissections, called a dissection tiling system. The system has applications in surface design, art and architecture, including wall surfaces, floors, ceiling and facades.

Bridges is an annual interdisciplinary conference on art and mathematics. This year’s event was held at Stockholm’s National Museum of Science and Technology.
