Digital fabrication

The data is incorporated into a relational digital model setting up a base system of interconnectivity between the differentiated members. Restraints and variables such as maximum material length, the variegation of density and the spatialising of the contour line allow control over the designed structure are generating a diagram, a strategic pattern for making and not an exact representation of the model. This is a known design parameter from the tradition of knitting and sewing patterns. In Woven Wood we use parametric modelling to incorporate an understanding of the inherent flexibility and tension of its material.
