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)

Kolerevic described three essential type of fabrication techniques of “additive, reductive, transfermative”. The three techniques enable people to create the ideal model that fullfill people’s need. For example. reductive teechinique could create opening s like windows or shresholds.

Paneling Grid & Attrac

Paneling Grid & Attrac

I did the panels following the steps tought on workshop, because i intended to design a panel that people could observe different things from different orientations, so one {209,437,149} {209,437,149} {176,443,0 panel is curved like turning a corner. {176,443,0} {Attractor Point Location} {Attractor Point Location} {Index Selection} 2.1 2.1 2.2 2.2 {Attractor Point Location}

Week Four Panels & Waffle

two panels isometric view

Waffle Isometric view

One of panel(the left one) is filled with hollow and created by weaverbird, the panel on the right is the combination of 2d and 3d. I used attracted points on both panels.

The waffle structure i created for two surfaces are twisted, and has a great variation in the width from front part to the back part.

Week Four

Laser Cutting

The steps for me to create laser cut file was straight froward, including “mashtoNurb”, “enrollsf”, “dupedge”, and click “pttabs”. The width of tab i created for me model is 3mm-5mm.

I did the Boolean by following the steps tought on workshop, then adjust the geometry inside. Then I cut the boolean form and come out the ideal shape of pavilion i want.

Week Five

Isometric

First of all, I chose the part in the center of the boolean model, then cut one side with 45 degree angle plane to form the final model. If image the model as a pavilion, the height could be 5 meters. While i was cutting the original model, I was intended to create a public space with multiple thresholds. The final model looks like a public space filled with four rounded open space. people are able to walk into the space from the shresholds on each side. The four rounded open spaces could be green house, reading room, cafe and space with lawn. The open rounded space on the pitched side could be glass green house, then people could enjoy more sunlight. Besides, people could pass through each open space freely, since the wall between each open spaces contains shreshold.

Task 01 Matrix I was intended to explore the combination of 2d and 3d panels, after a few I chose the 1-4 as my final panel. I also use attracted points on both panels, tried to make the patterns looks harmony with the panels. I was interested in creating a model that people could observe different thing from different orientations. Therefore, I create a panel with 2d and 3d patterns, from one orientation people could observe a plane filled with solid triangle, from an opposite angle, people could see a panel filled with solid triangles and hollowed 2D triangle planes.

Task 02 Matrix Comment on the choices you have made while iterating on task 2. Which versions your chose to develope and why? I choose the 3.4 as the final 3D model to print. I was intended to create a space with multiple thresholds. The final model looks like a public space filled with four rounded open space. If image the model as a pavilion, the pavlilion could be 5 meters high, people are able to walk into the space from the shresholds on each side. The four rounded open spaces could be green house, reading room, cafe and space with lawn. people could pass through each open space freely, since the wall between each open spaces contains shreshold.
