098671 - DESIGN TO FABRICATION
Similar to the 18th and 19th century industrial revolution, we are, today, in a process of societal change driven by the ‚digital revolution‘, that will signifcantly change architecture and design and the processes of production. Nevertheless while information technology and digital, rule-based, robotic processes already dominate large parts of our private and business live, mostly unflexible, industrial processes still primarily govern the production of goods.
With the integration of ‚digital production tools‘ in actual design and production processes, the boundaries between design development and production become increasingly blurred. In contrast to an concept of hierarchical design development in this environment the design development process is driven by the process of making: thinking by making. After the era of industrial production, the possibilities of computer-aided design and manufacturing revive some fundamental principles of traditional craft and inevitably lead to new design aesthetics.
Risultati di apprendimento attesi
Computational fabrication allows for a direct processing of digital designs into pysical objects. This transformation - from bits to atoms - requiers specfic know-how in the generation of the digital data and opens at the same time new possiblities for the creation of spatial concepts. Hence, the seminar explores the conditions and constraints as well as the perspectives for the design and manufacturing process in architecture.
Based on the 3D-modeling software Rhinoceros, two individual architectural/spatial projects will be developed and produced with two different fabrication technologies throughout the semester.
Computational Design in Architecture
Digital Design and Construction
Basic Knowledge in Digital Representation and 3D-Modeling.
The main software used in ths couse is Rhinoceros (www.rhinoceros3D).
Modalità di valutazione
1. Assessment of Class Work (group and/or individual): Applying knowledge and understanding; Making judgements; learning skills; practical application of theoretical knowledge, communication skills
2. Oral Presentation (group and/or individual): Knowledge and understanding; making judgements; communication skills
For the presentation of the projects a PDF-document has to be prepared, explaining the starting point (initial idea), the concpet development (design process) and the final result. In addition the physical prototypes and open file formats will be part of the evaluation.
