About Philip Beesley :
An Artist and an architect, Philip Beesly "creates architecture that concentrates on vital seething qualities built up from intensive repetition of miniature parts." - Niel Spiller

From the Architect's About page :

RESEARCH FOCUS: Responsive and distributed architectural environments and interactive systems, flexible lightweight structures integrating kinetic functions, microprocessing, sensor and actuator systems, with particular focus on digital fabrication methods and sheet-material derivations. Comprehensive architectural design and professional practice; textile structures; material crafts and fabrication; organicism and design integrated with nature; hybrid forms of nature; chemical metabolisms; field relationships; emotion, romanticism and 20th century spiritualism as alternate qualities in Modernism; alterity and dissociation; chthonian and expanded definitions of space; the archaic, genesis, futures.
