Computation Matters Workshop
COMPUTATION MATTERS is a workshop for integrative computational design. It presents an extensive introduction to digital design, complex geometry and digital fabrication. The focus of the workshop is the translation between digital morphogenesis, inherent material properties and fabrication execution through the development of parametric geometric models, as well as both digital and physical model analysis. Participants will design systems derived by the explored material behaviour, consisting of three-dimensional components aggregated within a network. The aim is the development of performative systems for a wide range of architectural, interior and product design applications.
For more information and applications:
The material chosen is polypropylene due to the large domain of material properties that can be subject to exploration. Physical experiments will be carried out in order to obtain understanding of the inherent material properties, which will be translated into digital environment. Components will be developed through polypropylene sheet manipulation techniques – bending, twisting or folding. Digital simulations andstructural analysis will be carried out for components and aggregations in parallel with physical prototyping.
COMPUTATION MATTERS workshop will expand from 24 to 28 February 2016 at Union of Architects, 11 Krakra Str, Sofia, Bulgaria.
