This is the group work that we developed at the Material intelligence workshop. The goal of the project was to explore different parametric features in a system made of differentiated components, as well as including the potential material for design innovation. Through iterative work flows with an emphasis placed on material prototyping, an installation was designed integrating digital parametric design and fabrication. The equipment used included an industrial CNC 3-axis Mill and CNC High-Force Cutter, The primary CAD platform used was Grasshopper for Rhino3D, supported by a suite of associated programs including Rhino Cam, RhinoNest, and Brazil Render.
"This immersive experience draws a diverse group of design participants from afar for a full schedule of exchanges with leading practices, fabrication lab visits, & LaN seminars… all while intensely exposed to urban infrastructure".
