Computational Design|3rd Year Project
Investigates the emergent relationships between architecture, engineering, biol- ogy, and computation. to discover a natural joining between a material system’s form, growth, and behavior. demonstrating the self-organization of material under force. Utilizing nylon fabric and wooden dowels as form-work, the weight of the fluid mortar slurry causes the fabric to droop, expand, and wrinkle before finding a state of equilibrium. The form that emerges resonates with the tension between our own elastic skin and fluid interior. Using digital tools to design and simulate the process yet allowing the forms to develop according to the inherent physical forces,
In architectural terms, this results in seeing how geometry, fabrication, and per- formance can cooperate to form a more effective architectural project.
