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)

Substractive fabrication: Removal of specified volumn of the material. Additive fabrication: Adding up material layer by layer. Formation fabrication: Mechamicao forces, restricting forces, heat or steam are applied to materials to form desired shape. Computer Numeric Controlled fabrication allows designers or architects to control their quality of products before the architectures are actually build. It also makes it faster in terms of mass production and can makes design more efficient.

Week Four Panels & Waffle

The two panels foloww the concentration rule of waffle structure. It also shows centralization.

The strucure shows a welcoming gesture and concentrates at one point at the top.

Week Four

Laser Cutting

It is better to check what surface is facing upward before laser cut. Also using etch lines to avoid tapes that destroy the surface.

Week Five

The bollean shows enclosrure space as well as openings.The reason I choose the first part to print is because although itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s square in shape, it gives a multiple ways of circulation.

Week Five

Isometric

The part that I choose to print is 1/8 of my overall model. I took inspiration from the Peter Zumthorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Serpentine Pavilion in M1 so I decided to make a spare shape and focus on different threshold and circulation when considering the model as an architecture. The part I choose to 3D print is the part that contains the most variety of volumn changes in the whole model. Also, some of the space in this part have interaction with the surface of the whole box and some of spaces are seperated from each other. Thinking of building quality, these changes can seperate different spaces into different functions. As shown in the drawings, I want it to be seen as a two-storey Pavilion at a scale at around 1:100. So the overall height would be around 7.5 meters. The lower story is connected to the ground and have the height of around 5 meters. People could access the Pavilion from multiple entrance. Also the part surrounded centre of pavilion could act as seatings as their height are around 0.5 meters. The opening at the side could allow natural light into the building. The upper level is seperated into 4 different areas and they are all surrounded by solids so it gives a feeling of safety. Also the solids could be considerred as walls so it gives a sence of privacy.

Design Matrix 1:5

The reason was I wanted to create a space that have a sense of concentration, and the frist surface set are meeting at one point. In order to emphasis this feeling I choose the point attractor their as well. Also the pattern are smaller at top and larger at the buttom to make it feel safer and Stucture concentrates at top end of waffle, the panelling attractors are more stable. I choose the first two panels because I wanted to have better control on light and shade as they are solid on the one side and have also placed here in order to form a better enlocure space. larger openings on the other. and the edges of panels are also concentrated toward the center.

Designon Matrix 1:5 that each column follows a progress from top to the bottom. I choose to only use one shape that I I choosed to make the matrix a logic created because I wanted to better emphasis on different form created by different rule of grid and attractors. The reason why I finally choose to use the first one is that it creates the most different sizes of space from the larges to the smallest. Also it have both interaction with the surface and the solid part that could be considerred as walls that seperate different spaces. Opening at the top allows more natural sunlight to go into the space and makes the space lighter, which creates interesting threshold.
