Machinic Processes in Architectural Design, 2001

Posted by on July 25, 2001

An electable course under the guidance of Professor Greg Lynn, investigating the aesthetic, technical and tectonic potential of topology based surface modeling combined with robotic manufacture.

The approach to design was to define the maximum and minimum limitations of a typical cnc (computer numerically controlled) machine and then exploit the formal permutations made possible within these limits. Advanced animation software was used for form generation and analysis.
