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 the reading, Kolerevic talk about three type of fabrication techniques, including: subtractive fabrication, additive fabrication and formative fabrication. Computer Numeric Controlled(CNC) fabrication is a fabrication process using a dedicated computer system to perform basic function over the movement of a machine tool using a set of coded instruction. The CNC fabrication with parametric modelling is an effecient way to create and adjust a model with the relative data, which more accurate than manual work.

Week Three

Surface Creation

The process of developing the surfaces is to create a script for a cube, then 8 different points are taken from the edgeof the cube to be connected to make 4 lines that forming into 2 different surfaces. By changing the data of the parametric nature on the grasshopper, creates different pairs of surfaces. (Surafaces on the right) The surfaces are in vary status: top two are facing each other, bottom two are crossing and intersecting.

Week Four Panels & Waffle

Isometric view of panelled surface

Isometric view of waffle

Two panelled surfaces are made by different pattern. For the left surface, I use a hollow pyramid as the brep to panel the surface, which gives some openning space that light in the volume. For the right surface, I use two pyramid panelling which creating a movement of shadow.

The waffle structure is simple, with no intersecting section. It would be clear to show the movement and the pattern on the surfaces.

Week Four

Laser Cutting

There are the panelled patterens and waffle structure. For the panel surface, by joining two or three patterens together and using the unroll tool in Rhino, creates the outline of the unrolled surfaces. Then adding tabs for the patterns to form the complete laser cutting lines. For the waffle structure, I use â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Make2Dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; commen to create the cut lines of the waffle structure and place into the Laser cutting template.

Week Five

At the top is my design boolean form in grasshopper. I use 3 different sphere and adject the scaling to create 4 boolean form(the bottom 4 images).

Week Five

Isometric

For this model, I perfer to build up a simple model with regular shapes. The reason I choose this part of the whole boolean form is because it repersenta a good view of its shadow. There are several qualities achieved by the model. The model has various sized space suit for public and private. The opening space on the top is served as a scuttle that let natural lighting in.

Task 01 Matrix My final surface decision is 1.1 and 2.1. The surfaces are facing each other that is clear to show the position. For the panelled patterns, I choose 2.4 which is the combination of 3.2 and 3.3. It gives two different types of panelling, one with hollow sphere and one is enclosed.
