Generative Design | Digital Fabrication Workshop @ TAMU / College Station.

DIGITAL FABRICATION WORKSHOP!

@TAMU | COLLEGE OF ARCHITECTURE. COLLEGE STATION. TX. USA.

Gabriel Esquivel presents:

SEPTEMBER 2011 | 20 Hours.

COMPUTATIONAL DESIGNBIO-RE / GENERATIVE DESIGN

Prototypical Avant-garde architectonic structures.

PARAMETRIC ANALYSIS | RHINOCEROS + GRASSHOPPER

Objectives:

The student will develop computational design skills to afford integral design solutions through Grasshopper visual scripting; this will lead the design layout into qualitative research through contemporary methodologies in the building and fabrication process: Laser cut, cnc milling and 3D printing.

FRAMEWORK.

INTERACTIVE OBJECTS_visual [OOP] programming.

  • Parametric geometry generation: Creating parametric geometry by points and curves generation with specific relationship constraints.
  • Pattern MACRO/micro control: Creating special surface conditions, providing density, reactivity and efficiency; developing a phenomenological organic progressive interactivity and functionality to the user.
  • Digital Fabrication: Design computational protocols to describe structure morphology as a set of linear developable elements. Those singular elements can then be unrolled and cut out of flat sheets of material.

COMPOSE / DECOMPOSE / RE | COMPOSE

Generative process:

1.   Constraints definition.
2.   Pattern generation.
3.   Geometry parametric optimization.

  • Geometric transformations from one state to other.
  • Members generated within a structural network.
  • Pattern reactivity programming into double curvature surfaces.

4.   Fabrication Layout.
5.   Fabrication and physical modeling.
