Week Three

Reading: Kolerevic B. 2003. Architecture in the Digital Age

Kolerevic described three fundamental type of fabrication techniques in the reading. Outline the three techniques and discuss the potential of Computer Numeric Controlled fabrication with parametric modelling. (150 words max)

Week Three

Surface Creation

The primary focus of the manipulation I did was with the original base surface. I wanted to create a strong connection between the two panels whilst also allowing them to sit far apart from each other. Using grasshopper, I found it particularly useful to have the corner surfaces of the outer boundary box on at all times. This allowed me to see which edge the corner that I was manipulating was moving on. For my final design, the panels move away from each other. One bends at a 90-degree angle from the other surface and the bridging structure, creating a cantilever effect. In creating the panel on top of the surface I decided to use attractor points as they created a more intense graduation of directions and appeared more random than that which a curve attractor created.
