Architectural object, Timisoara 16th-22nd July, 2012.
Digital technology techniques were used to generate answers for a real context. The site analysis gave us the parameters in the creative process for the architectural object. Through the digital fabrication like 3d printing and CNC milling, the virtual generated geometries were first materialized at a small scale and after that at the real scale.
The workshop had 3 stages:
The first one was represented by a series of tutorials, which helped the participants to become more familiar with the parametric design processes using plugins like Grasshopper, Geco + Ecotect, Kangaroo and also with the digital fabrication techniques.
For the second stage the participants had to study the relationships between the site's geometrical parameters and a design process using physical force simulations.
The last stage was dedicated to 3d printing the prototypes and to assembling process of Aether Eye Installation at full scale.
