The aim of the Design Research workshop is to design a complete performative structure with various degrees of enclosure from semi- and completely open to enclosed . The structure consists of materially informed components, whereas materially informed components are addressing requirements with respect to functional, structural, and thermal insulation performances. The workshop advances design-to-robotic-production (D2RP) methods with the aim to explore performative hybridity at different scales, ranging from micro levels, as material systems, to macro levels as spatial and architectural configurations. From Design Computation Point of view, the goal is to develop and implement a performance driven design system with multiple environmental, structural and production potentialities and constraints data sets. In the case of this prototype various material distribution and thickness variation techniques were developed and tested to create an informed porous architectural system.
Soon with more Info and images.
