The research tries to create a direct link between architectural design concepts and the processes of building construction utilised through file-to-factory processes of CNC fabrication, Rapid prototyping or laser cutting processes. We development three areas: material aesthetic and properties, ornamental tooling, tectonic jointing and surface/structure integration.
The emerging spatial forms will be created in direct interaction with the physical materials assembled and fused in real-time interactions within the environment. We will digitally and physically analyse the different possibilities of interconnection of the components of both systems, house and vehicle, and the interface between the systems as well. The transition between hard (core, rigid structural components or vehicle’s pod) and soft (transformable skin or mobile elements) elements with their interaction.
