Digital Workflow Reference for 2018
Phase 2: Design and Prototyping (7/23-25)
In the second phase, the concentration will be placed on material testing and construction strategies. We will start with the introduction of experimental design and construction methods, exploring the hardware and software tools prepared by the tutors. Participants are expected to work in small groups, exploring various potential use of materials, linking the computational design models to physical performance. The focus of this phase is to conduct collective development of the final design+build project, conducting 1:1 material testing, onsite testing and strategies. Having a clear and executable 1:1 construction strategy and workflow with local materials and test scale models of the overall geometries is essential. This phase will end with short presentations to allow for collaborative discussion and feedback before commencing the design and build phase of the final structure.
