With unique installations that reflect his passion for advancing interactions with contemporary technologies, Hashem Joucka will be exhibiting his work in the MakerSpace at the Jordan Museum.
Hashem Joucka is a construction technologist, researcher and maker. He earned his Master’s degree from the Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia (IAAC), where his research focused on incorporating art, technology and science hybrids to create sustainable, interactive environments. In 2014, Joucka completed his diploma at the Fab Academy, an outreach program from MIT's Center of Bits and Atoms. Prior to that, he earned his Bachelor’s degree in Construction Management From Liverpool John Moores University.
As a passionate advocate of advancing the innovative interactions with contemporary technologies, Joucka has been freelancing to produce custom-made items and working on the use of digital fabrication, physical programming and smart materials.
By hybridizing analogue and digital skill sets, CAD-CAM techniques, computational design and rapid prototyping, Joucka’s installations reflect on one of the greatest challenges in the construction industry; blurring the lines between the role of the architect, engineer, and builder, and promoting rapid prototyping as an essential precursor to building construction.
