You may or may not know this, that Kore Design offers laser scanning services. What is laser scanning you ask? Laser scanning is a non-contact technological process by which a device digitally captures and accurately documents the shape of objects and rooms through the use of laser and camera. All the device needs is line-of-sight [...]
You've probably noticed that at Kore we're interested in what the future of architectural design and construction could look like from a technological perspective. Aion Robotics' unmanned ground vehicle caught our attention. Could this autonomous ATV that has 2000lbs of hauling capacity be something that could help in the construction industry. It can be manually [...]
Curbed Philly recently posted this GIF created by University of Pennsylvania graduate Corey Fader for a class project. It's easy to forget these days how much the skyline has developed over the last 70 or so years. This GIF chronicles that using an old 1946 photograph of the area. To see the full Cubed article, [...]

The roll-up garage door creates an inviting presence on Cecil B Moore for anyone passing by looking for somewhere to grab a quick coffee or a comfortable place to work. The lower level offers ample seating and [...]
Laser scanning and drones are amazing on their own. They've also been combined to do a version of 3D mapping of exteriors for a little while. But check out this video showing a drone laser scanning in confined spaces the interior of a building. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IMSozUpFFkU
On Friday, September 20th of 2019 Thomas Jefferson University officially opened the College of Health Professions Physicians Assistant Program in Voorhees, NJ. Here is an article about the project from TJU's website about the project. If you'd like to see a few photos of the project from our portfolio, click here.
3D printing is slowly becoming integrated into the architectural design and construction process. Applications that 3D printing can help with: Creating and printing concept models: Some firms have started implementing the use of the 3D printed models to create concept models. This helps both the architects and clients visualize and have a better understanding of [...]
A little while a go we posted about framing starting at our Belgrade St project, and we recently got to visit the site and it's moving on nicely. We're excited to see this project continue to come to life. Also that view of center city Philadelphia is pretty awesome. Stay tuned for more updates.
Archinect posted an article recently talking about "[h]ow BIM and Augmented Reality aid the construction of new dorms at UIC". Streamlining and improving cost efficiency and project delivery times are what the AEC teams are constantly striving to do and in the article we see how BIM and Augmented Reality were used in the construction [...]
