Emma-Kate Matthews is an Architect, Artist, Musician and Composer. In 2012, she founded EKM Works; a creative practice which promotes cross-disciplinary work with a focus in exploring the boundaries of innovative technologies.
More on Emma-Kate Matthews
Emma-Kate teaches a Masters design unit at the Bartlett School of Architecture, UCL where she is also due to begin a design and performance-led PhD. Her research concerns spatio-temporal interdependence between architecture and performed music. In 2015, she released two solo albums of experimental music featuring both electronic and acoustic instruments. She is currently writing a site-specific composition for the Church of St Leonard in Shoreditch, which is directly influenced by digital acoustic simulation and 3D scanning. This piece will be performed later this summer.
Aside from her academic work, Emma-Kate is also a member of the team at bespoke fabrication company Weber Industries, where she specialises in geometric rationalisation, digital fabrication, simulation, generative and parametric modelling.
Emma-Kate's presentation is entitled Generation to Fabrication
A presentation of projects which have used Rhino and Grasshopper throughout all stages; from the initial generation of geometric forms, through to the creation of fabrication drawings and organisation of assembly information. Examples will include the recently completed “exploded sphere screens” by Weber industries: A hanging structure containing almost 1000 machined Aluminium Pieces.
