Digital & Material Fabrication explores physical and digital computational techniques used to develop the architectural qualities of different material systems adapted for specific climatic contexts. Digital models will explore possibilities in response to various environmental parameters while physical models will explore the integration of material behaviour and fabrication processes. Techniques derived from the concepts and knowledge of the hierarchical organisation of biological systems and computational models, developed in the seminar Course ‘Natural Systems and Biomimetics’, will be implemented. The purpose of Design I is to design, develop computational workflow techniques, analyse, and fully fabricate material systems that are situated within EmTech Design & Build research agenda.
