DIGITALLY RECONFIGURABLE FORMWORK

FALL - 2013

While precast concrete is more efficient than cast-in-place concrete in relation to both formwork costs and quality output, there is still an opportunity to improve the process. The precast industry’s current standards for creating concrete formwork are time consuming, labor intensive and high in material demand to generate formwork. Each formwork typically produces one geometric outcome. Our research examines the viability of a digitally reconfigurable formwork allowing for a range of geometric outcomes from a single formwork.

Both applied and empirical research methodology were utilized to create digital and physical testing scenarios. These tests produced a range of physical samples combining traditional precast urethane mold making techniques with an adjustable stepper motor framework to provide a spectrum of panel geometries. The culmination of these tests is a full-scale digitally reconfigurable formwork controlled by a computer model capable of producing a wide range of geometric outcomes and a full-scale panel prototype.

MOTOR TO ALLTHREAD CONNECTION (3D PRINTED) The linear stepper motor uses a unique thread for its drive bar, thus a 3d printed connection was designed to couple the 1/4� all thread rods.

CAST IN CONNECTION TO URETHANE This seal was designed to counteract leaking that occurs along the outside edges of the casting surface.

URETHANE SEAL/GROMMET This seal was designed to counteract leaking that occurs along the outside edges of the casting surface.

our design looked to understand panelized facades from precedents that worked with similar sinuous geometry and strips. once a language was started we began developing the grasshopper definition of paneling and structuring. the definition breaks down the surface into panels and uses corner point coordinates to extract dimensions that can be used to calibrate the formwork. corner points from subdivided surface are extracted and referenced to a base plane. this process gives the dimensions for the formwork to move to be calibrated to the surface geometry.

THIS INTERVENTION PROPOSES THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN PUBLIC SPACE AND URBAN DWELLING. THE METHODS EMPLOYED STUDIED THE CURRENT USE OF THE UNIVERSITY CAMPUS AS A COMPARISON OF PUBLIC TO PRIVATE SPACES. THIS EXAMINES THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN COMMUTER STUDENTS TO RESIDENTS STUDENTS AND THE HABITATION VARIATION THAT PUBLIC SPACE SUPPORTS.

The current circulation method is linear and point based. Moving from one space directly to another space. Prohibiting the activation of spaces and program

The proposed circulation method is zone and spatially based. One can move in multiple directions with various levels of layering.
