1 4.173 Design Fabrication Workshop Design Systems Prof. Larry Sass Department of Architecture and Planning MIT

2 Systems of Design, Computation & Fabrication Create a build-able system Design System – Construction System

3 Why are design systems important? Work Flow Design is process of explorations (Multiple Representations) Can be a Computational Program Parametric Modeling Generative Algorithms Shape Grammars

4 Can systematic a approach be used in design? Designers create representations of an idea one idea at a time with slight differences between systems? Each statement leads to another statement or will each statement lead to a conclusion in the design process?

5 Pre Rational Norman Foster Andrea Palladio A pre-rational system in design is a design system mapped to a shape or an organized plan.

6 Post Rational Gehry Gaudi A post rational system is a shape that has been chopped into build-able sections. Each section is its own element in a larger whole.
