Blurring Structures


Abstract
In recent years geometrical models became increasingly augmented through requirements of CNC fabrication techniques. By integrating constraints like geometric complexity, material properties, and panel sizes the design process is pre-rationalized.
This research aims to integrate the structural performance of building components as design driver from early on. In collaborative design processes of architects and engineers structural design is thus becoming an integrated node within a network of multiple requirements which have to be balanced. One promising way to blur the realm of quantitative data with qualitative approaches is seen in the use of macro-scripting and programming.
