Core Studio I
Core Studio 1 commences with analysis of all the parameters and characteristics of the material systems generated in the Induction Studio, and uses the results of this analysis as the first generation of an evolutionary series. Through the application of evolutionary strategies and computational techniques the architectural qualities of different material systems will be recombined and enhanced over succeeding generations. As the systems increase in scale and three dimensional complexity through digital morphogenesis, a series of built models will explore the integration of material behaviour and fabrication processes. Core Studio 1 will be supported throughout with weekly sessions on associative modelling in Grasshopper/RhIno, workshops on scripting, and weekly sessions on geometry and iterative processes to model and control growth processes. The studio will conclude with fully fabricated and digitally modelled doubly curved material systems that exhibit advanced and fully integrated structural and environmental properties, with comprehensive documentation and assessment of their individual and group potential for further development towards architectural scale applications.
