THINKING THROUGH MAKING: Material and Process Intelligence Revealed in Architecture Through Design and Fabrication
MetadataShow full item record
This thesis explores the potential for a detail or joint to be the generator of form. By thinking through making – this requires to create, to gain tacit knowledge (in addition to explicit knowledge), and to translate design intent through to built form. The ideas being tested here are realized in built form and studied to pull out information to submit back into the design and fabrication process via a feedback loop. The concept for this thesis is an exploration into how this methodology can contribute to the way architects think about and practice architecture. In addition, it is the exploration on how making can alter the way we think about and modify space. It also takes into account the new technologies we have that allow us to design, using parametric modeling, computational design and fabrication techniques to aid thinking and making (testing, prototyping, etc.).
