S U R F A C E F A B R I C A T I O N ARCHITECTURE

IS A COMPLEX SYSTEM OF

MANY VARIED COMPONENTS. COMPONENTS

IN

THE

EACH

SYSTEM

OF THE

REQUIRES

DESIGN ATTENTION IN ORDER TO CREATE A COMPLETE ARCHITECTURAL WORK.

DEVELOPING

AN

UNDERSTANDING

OF

MANUFACTURING PROCESSES HAS ENABLED ME TO BETTER UNDERSTAND THE COSTS OF DESIGN DECISIONS IN TERMS OF MONETARY, TIME, AND ENERGY COSTS.

MULTIPLE SCALES OF DESIGN DETAIL THESE

STUDIES OF SURFACE, MANUFACTURING, AND DIGITAL DESIGN METHODS ARE EXAMPLES OF MY PERSONAL

BELIEF THAT ARCHITECTURE SHOULD BE DESIGNED WITH AT LEAST THREE LEVELS OF DETAIL.

EACH

LEVEL SHOULD

MANIFEST THE SAME DESIGN INTENT THROUGH DIFFERENT MECHANISMS OF FORM AND TEXTURE.

WITH

AN UNDERSTANDING OF STAGES OF MANUFACURING PROCESSES, BUILDING COMPONENTS CAN BE BETTER

CRAFTED TO REINFORCE MEANING IN A GIVEN DESIGN.

RESEARCH QUESTION THIS

INVESTIGATION BEGAN WITH THE QUESTION:

BIAXIAL THE

CAN

COMPLEX CURVED SURFACES BE ACHIEVED IN METAL THROUGH

CNC

PERFORATION AND HAND BENDING?

RIGIDITY WAS ADDED TO THE PANELS THROUGH CURVED PERFORATION SEQUENCES OF ALTERNATING DIRECTIONALITY.

INVESTIGATION RESOLVED THAT COMPLEX CURVATURE BENDING IS POSSIBLE FOR CREATING MODERATELY RIGID FORMS THROUGH INFORMATIVE PERFORATIONS AND HAND BENDING.

ITERATIONS OF FORMS TESTED
