This is an exploration of the material impact of the timber industry compared to our personal studio project re(al)form. Environmental impact phases Which lifecycle phases of our project set us apart from the traditional timber industry? Tackled issues Transportation and manufacturing Summing up – where do we stand?
The MAA is a visionary master program with an innovative and open structure, mixing diverse disciplines, shaping professionals capable of producing theoretical & practical solutions towards responsive cities, architecture & technology.
Exploring the unique properties of timber and the fabrication methods associated with it, enabling us to work with complex geometries and find appropriate strategies to realize them. We started out looking at different situations to apply our geometry and potentially make a gapahuk (a building made of wooden materials, originally intended for emergency accommodation), forest … Read more
The goal of this project is to comprehend the pick-and-place robotic fabrication process using timber members and how to optimize the process using design choices. By experimenting with various twist, rotate, shift, mirror, and scale actions, column typologies that eventually took the form of a zipper-like column were created. The exercise helps us to understand … Read more
Context This blog documents the negotiation of a System of Scan to Fabricate workflows related to dealing with irregular raw materials, Namely offcuts from the saw-mill logging industry and CNC – Offcuts in the digital fabrication workshop. A negotiation between design input and the raw material topology necessitates research. With each material presenting unique Opportunities … Read more
