Today before we examine your ‘structures’ project, a review summing up what has been discussed so far.
From the first lecture : For a few years a lot of attention was given to the (then) new Fractal Geometry and its possible implications for architecture. In recent years we have given much thought to the implications and possibilities of computer aided design and manufacturing. In this term it is proposed we continue in this vein. We will look at form giving/form finding approaches through the ages in the introductory phase of the course, and focus later on on the digital methods applied widely these days. Students are encouraged to come up with a form-giving, form-finding project that they can realize, either in a manually fabricated model, or by one of the three digitally driven systems that are at our disposal in the the School: the laser cutter, the CNC router and the ice robot. There will be lectures which will draw on materials covered in previous years; there will be readings of appropriate material, and there will be a midterm exam. Instead of a final exam there will be a final project assignment.
Arch 528-outline-1-2.docx Assigment-1 due next Monday Seasonally relevant construction exercise: A fabric reinforced, self-supporting ice shell. Taking advantage of the cold weather (which will last till Saturday according to the latest weather forecast: Use a stretchy piece of fabric, and model it some 3D fashion, letting it free hang over a round edge like a garbage can or propping it up by a few sticks or a balloon, and let it freee outside. Photograph the process and the final structure, and discuss your results in class next Monday.
