OVERVIEW

The seminar will focus on developing a design process which uses analytical data, such as solar gain analysis, to drive the scripted panelisation of a building form. We will work to uncover the technical and artistic potential of the design process with the aim of creating ‘responsive building skins’. The designs of the paneling systems are done within the constrains of a digital fabrication process called incremental sheet forming forming, in which an industrial robot presses a sheet of metal against a computer guided piston ‘field’ in order to create a mould, which can be used for injection moulding UPM Profi - a recycled paper composite. The course is conducted in collaboration with Aalto University Department of Material Technology.
