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)

Accroding to Kolerevic, the three fundamental type of fabrication techniques include subtractive, additive and formative fabrication. Subtractive fabrication involves the removal of a specific volume of material from solid, using electro-, chemically- or mechanicallyruductive process. Additive fabrication techniques involves incremental forming by adding material in a layer-by-layer fashion, in a process which is the converse of milling. Formative fabrication is where the mechanical forces, restricting forms, heat or steam are applied to a material so as to form it into the desired shape through reshapeing or deformation. These techniques in Computer Numeric Controlled fabrication offer rich opportunities for the tectonic exploration of new geometries.

Week Three

Surface Creation

These surfaces show my attempts in the process of deciding the two final faces.

Week Four Panels & Waffle

Both of the panels of each faces involves a combination of solid and hollow panels.

The final wraffel structure includes one flat surface and one curly surface to generate a variation in its shape. The spaces between two

surfaces enables the interaction of light in the interior of the structure.

Week Four

Laser Cutting

Most of the panels are joined and unrolled together. I intended to build panels that could be unrolled together easily for the purpose of making clean paper model.

5

The triangular shape of the panel provides space with the potential of functional uses The combination of solid panels and hollow panels creates the transition between open space and private space

The panel defines the threshold through the boundary of light and shadow Perforations on two faces allow both nature light to go through into the interior and artificial light to go through from the interior.

Week Five

Isometric

This geometry features in its large hollow spaces on one side which allows enough light to go through into the structure, angular geometry created by the boolean geometries that forms a contrast with the smooth inner spaces, trimed boolean geometries on the left side which give complete open spaces and spaces with varied sizes and depth.
