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)

According to Kolerevic, the three fundamental type of the fabrication techniques are subtractive, additive and Formative. Subtractive fabrication is that a volume of material is removed from the sauce solid. Additive fabrication is adding material layer by layer to finish fabrication process. For instance, 3D printing is one of additive fabrication. Formative fabrications use machines to reshape into the design form.

Week Three

Surface Creation

Different sufaces were created. Compare with asymmetrical forms, I prefer symmetrical forms. It give an opportunity to show both patterns.

3

Week Four Panels & Waffle

Comment on the Panelling of your two surfaces. The pattern that was shown in this image is what I called the blossom flower. The central nine patterns are the blossom flower. The surrounding 18 patterns are lower than the flower which make the flower more significant.

The waffle is a symmetrical form. I try to make the volume as big as possible. So if it is a pavilion it can hold more people.

Week Four

Laser Cutting

I tried to unroll the model roll by roll. However, the model is too complex that most of the patterns can only be unrolled one by one. All the tabs were made in 3mm. This make my model making process a little bit difficult. Because the tabs are too small. 5mm tabs would be better.

Week Five

I try to use different polygons to create the Boolean object. During the process I found that complicated polygons can create some complicated forms, but it might not interesting enough. Thus, I decided to use one simple polygons and make it arrange it in different order to make some complex and interesting form.

Week Five

Isometric

Instead of chose my part randomly I decided to choose use click plane to find the most important and complex part. This part of the model is complex and interesting enough. It can be considered as a pavilion that have different rooms (those hollow parts are rooms) and all the rooms are connected. So, if it is the pavilion, the are circulation must be great. Also, light can get through the model easily.

Task 01 Matrix First three rolls of them share the same surface. However, the patterns are different. The last roll of it share the same pattern with the second roll. However, the surface is different with others. I chose the second one. Because I prefer 3D pattern than 2D pattern. I prefer the solid pattern rather than the hollowed one.

Task 02 Matrix I used different polygons and different attractors. I finally chose the third one. The reason is that single curve attractor can attract those polygons in to one corner. Those polygons will intersect with each others. Which gives it multiple possibilities.
