Description:

FORMAKERS will take advantage of the "digital fabrication REvolution". We publish projects of urban design/ architectural research/ fashion design/ 3d print/ parametric design / architecture model /photography and much more.FORMAKERS invites architects, designers, artists, students, scientists and individuals of all backgrounds to explore, research and investigate new design paradigms and urban visions.

Responsive Skin III Workshop / MAGLAB - AIU

Posted in University / Research - MAGLAB by * FORMAKERS | Tags: Parametric

The workshop asks how material behavior can be introduced into architectural design and which consequences this has on design.

©


©
The workshop focused on the behavior of material in larger arrays and how one can design and steer these.

©


©
The topic was scrutinized under different points of view (biology, mathematics, art) to end up in an architectural expression.

©


©
The workshop was structured in theoretical lectures, seminars on necessary digital tools and practical work during, which students explored around and apply the concepts and strategies explained throughout physical responsive real scale prototype.

©


©
The workshop supported with contemporary tools (digital fabrication) and technology (associative environments) which provided a strategic means for navigating the multitude of forces at play, while the prototype served as the activating link between material research and design innovation.

©
Workshop approach Knowing about the complexity of materials and the limitations in their behavior, we started our investigation with processes of physical modeling.

©


©
These ‘Material Probes’ was a key means for directly identifying and gaining knowledge of material properties and behaviors.

We then investigated how folding and origami with the supports of parametric tools can be supported the encoding and activation these performances to inform and even drive geometric design models.
