Catalogue data

AbstractIn the Design and Digital Fabrication Project students collaboratively design, fabricate and assemble a 1:1 architectural installation.
The resulting project exploits the geometric freedom offered by computational design and showcases the potential of digital fabrication methods such as additive manufacturing for architecture.
ObjectiveStudents develop custom scripts to design and to generate automatically the required data for a digital fabrication method. Computational form finding methods and computational optimization strategies are investigated to improve the performance of the structures.
In a collaborative teamwork, the students explore how to integrate digital technologies into the continuous workflow from concept-phase to fabrication. Students acquire in-depth experience in working with large-scale 3D printing technologies and learn how to establish a continuous digital process chain from design to fabrication.
ContentInformation on this course will be provided shortly by the chair of Prof. Benjamin Dillenburger.
