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.

Korelevicâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s three fundamental types of fabrication techniques include two-dimensional fabrication, and both additive and subtractive fabrication, all of which are detailed below: Two-Dimensional Fabrication (Laser cutting, plasma cutting, water jet): Composed of a cutting head that moves horizontally in the X and Y axis, generally over a thin sheet of material. Additive Fabrication: Means of fabrication in three-dimensional axis, generated by splitting object into a number of 2D layers which are then built up to give shape to desired form. Subtractive Fabrication: Cutting head that can move in X, Y and Z axis (some machines also allow rotation for undercutting, etc.). Cuts away from a block of material to give shape to desired form. Parametric modelling allows designers to achieve multiple iterations of a design without having to completely restart or modify their project in the physical dimension. Using these digitally-designed models, they can then bring their forms to life through CNC fabrication to create scaled models of their previously virtual work.

Different arrangement of curves, however this time tapering out to great a more ambiguous idea of circulation through the space, similar overarching curve design.

Focusing on symmetry and form, however this time the surfaces could have uses on both sides of shape, being both a place to take shelter, and on the other side, a place that could be appropriated for seating, etc.

Week Four

Panelling and Waffle

Before

Waffle created to match surface. Panellised edges needed to be made to ensure surface would be developable and panelling would fit cleanly on model.

After

Vertical waffle components had to have their external edges panellised in order to make sure surfaces would be developable.

1. Original Idea created in workshop, however not used because level of intricacy could be improved. 2. 2D Panelling surface to create variation between the two surfaces, relates to third iteration through mirroring it’s negative space. 3. Improved design following first iteration, also made to compliment second iteration in positive space, with scripts for altering geometry heights. 4. Another panelling iteration explored through 3D space, using a pentagon extruded to a point.

Laser Cutting

Laser cutting file for waffle: The laser cut file was fairly simplistic to create, however due to the irregularity of some of the shapes, lining up the cut lines to save time proved to be difficult.

The iteration chosen showcases both 2D and 3D panelling, with surfaces made up of three lofted curves to form an archway over the top of the interior space, leaving a small space for open air to pass through the top of the structure. On the 2D Panelling side, permeable geometries increase in size as you move down the model, mirroring the opposite surface, of which has itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 3D geometry height increase as you progress downward. The chance in hole size on the 2D side plays with light as it enters the structure, whereas on the 3D side, light is manipulated on the surface, catching peaks and shrouding troughs in darkness. Hypothesized circulation is limited to two entry/exit points. The structure does not offer any particular spots to ease away from congestion that may occur through the axis, but instead beckons users through the archways and out the other side.

Task 01 Matrix I chose to develop the iterations that were both aesthetic and had design complexity, that is also supported by design logic and implications. For task one, I wanted to create a structure that reached up over the head of the user (at a particular scale), and directed them through the space with little ambiguity.
