Kibwe Tavares // Factory Fifteen
“Radical animation-architecture studio Factory Fifteen present a series of films depicting very different future worlds. They mould their wildly imaginative future scenarios into ultra-detailed shorts that are at once cautionary tales and fantastical celebrations of modern technology’s infinite possibilities”. DAZED.
Also an alumnus of the Bartlett School of Architecture, to great accolade with his graduating film Robots of Brixton; Kibwe co-founded Factory Fifteen and works predominantly in developing new IP’s for film and TV. Other accolades include a prestigious TED fellowship and recognition as one of Fast Company’s ‘100 Most Creative People in Business’.
Gilles Retsin Architecture is a London based architecture and design practice investigating new architectural models which engage with the potential of increased computational power and fabrication to generate buildings and objects with a previously unseen structure, detail and materiality. The studio is interested in the impact of computation on the core principles of architecture – the bones rather than the skin. Gilles Retsin graduated from the Architectural Association in London, prior to founding his own practice, he worked in Switzerland as a project architect with Christian Kerez, and in London with Kokkugia. He also co- founded SoftKill Design, a collective design studio investigating generative design methodologies for additive manufacturing and 3D-printing. Alongside his practice, Gilles directs a research cluster at UCL/ the Bartlett school of Architecture and is a senior lecturer at the University of East-London.
