title Composite Systems for Lightweight Architectures: Case studies in large-scale CFRP winding
source ACADIA // 2016: POSTHUMAN FRONTIERS: Data, Designers, and Cognitive Machines [Proceedings of the 36th Annual Conference of the Association for Computer Aided Design in Architecture (ACADIA) ISBN 978-0-692-77095-5] Ann Arbor 27-29 October, 2016, pp. 326-331
summary The introduction of lightweight Carbon Fiber Reinforced Polymer (CFRP) based systems into the discipline of architecture and design has created new opportunities for form, fabrication methodologies and material efficiencies that were previously difficult if not impossible to achieve through the utilization of traditional standardized building materials. No longer constrained by predefined material shapes, nominal dimensions, and conventional construction techniques, individual building components or entire structures can now be fabricated from a single continuous material through a means that best accomplishes the desired formal and structural objectives while creating minimal amounts of construction waste and disposable formwork. This paper investigates the design, fabrication and structural potentials of wound, pre-impregnated CFRP composites in architectural-scale applications through the lens of numeric and craft based composite winding implemented in two unique research projects (rolyPOLY + Cloud Magnet). Fitting into the larger research agenda for the CFRP-based robotic housing prototype currently underway in the “One Day House” initiative, these two projects also function as a proof of concept for CFRP monocoque and gridshell based structural systems. Through a rigorous investigation of these case studies, this paper strives to answer several questions about the integration of pre-impregnated CFRP in future full-scale interventions: What form-finding methodologies lend themselves to working with CFRP? What are the advantages and disadvantages of working with pre-impregnated CFRP tow in large-scale applications? What are efficient methods for the placement of CFRP fiber on-site? As well as how scalable is CFRP?

title Highly Informed Robotic 3D Printed Polygon Mesh: A Nobel Strategy of 3D Spatial Printing
source ACADIA // 2016: POSTHUMAN FRONTIERS: Data, Designers, and Cognitive Machines [Proceedings of the 36th Annual Conference of the Association for Computer Aided Design in Architecture (ACADIA) ISBN 978-0-692-77095-5] Ann Arbor 27-29 October, 2016, pp. 298-307
summary Though robotic 3D printing technology is currently undergoing rapid development, most of the research and experiments are still based on a bottom up layering process. This paper addresses long term research into a robotic 3D printed polygon mesh whose struts are directly built up and joined together as rapidly generated physical wireframes. This paper presents a novel “multi-threaded” robotic extruder, as well as a technical strategy to create a “printable” polygon mesh that is collision-free during robotic operation. Compared to standard 3D printing, architectural applications demand much larger dimensions at human scale, geometrically lower resolution and faster production speed. Taking these features into consideration, 3D printed frameworks have huge potential in the building industry by combining robot arm technology together with FDM 3D printing technology. Currently, this methodology of rapid prototyping could potentially be applied on pre-fabricated building components, especially ones with uniform parabolic features. Owing to the mechanical features of the robot arm, the most crucial challenge of this research is the consistency of non-stop automated control. Here, an algorithm is employed not only to predict and solve problems, but also to optimize for a highly efficient construction process in coordination of the robotic 3D printing system. Since every stroke of the wireframe contains many parameters and calculations in order to reflect its native organization and structure, this robotic 3D printing process requires processing an intensive amount of data in the back stage.

title A Collaborative Digital Design Workshop: an ANN-based paradigm approach
source Computing in Architecture / Re-Thinking the Discourse: The Second International Conference of the Arab Society for Computer Aided Architectural Design (ASCAAD 2006), 25-27 April 2006, Sharjah, United Arab Emirates
summary This paper relies on observation and analysis an internationally digital design exchange activity, “The FCU & Bartlett School of Architecture, university college London (UCL) digital architecture workshop” to propose an educational model based on the artificial neural network (ANN). We expect that the results of this work can lead to the establishment of a scoring mechanism that can "adapt" to the difficulty of assigned problems and assess students' progress. An international technological exchange workshop based on the theme of digital design is helpful to attain an accelerated heightening in the quality and experience of education. This is going to be an educational trend and increasingly prevalent in the future. A successful educational curriculum in digital design relies on a concerted effort amongst curriculum framework, learning activities, and course content. While, an internationally exchange digital design workshop is different from traditional "semester-based" units of curriculums. The short-term educational models are required high degrees interaction and collaboration. On the other hand, artificial neural network system that is context aware in ill-defined and complex environments is highly adaptive. It can extract, interpret and use the context information and adapt its functions to obtain an optimal correspondence between “context change” and “desired goal” efficiently. Therefore, an ANN-based pedagogical mechanism is able to encourage students to select relatively difficult design problems and promote more design originality, interaction and collaboration.

title Robotic Fabrication of Structural Performance-based Timber Gridshell in Large-Scale Building Scenario
source ACADIA // 2016: POSTHUMAN FRONTIERS: Data, Designers, and Cognitive Machines [Proceedings of the 36th Annual Conference of the Association for Computer Aided Design in Architecture (ACADIA) ISBN 978-0-692-77095-5] Ann Arbor 27-29 October, 2016, pp 196-205
summary This paper investigates the potential of a digital geometry system to integrate structural performance-based design and robotic fabrication in the scenario of building a large-scale non-uniform timber shell. It argues that a synthesis of multi-objective optimization, design and construction phases is required in the realization of timber shell construction in architecture practice in order to fulfill the demands of building regulation. Confronting the structural challenge of the non-uniform shell, a digital geometry system correlates all the three phases by translating geometrical information between them. First, a series of structural simulations and experimentations with different objectives are executed to inform the particular shape and tectonic details of each shell component based on its local condition in the geometrical system. Then, controlled by the geometrical system, a hybrid process of different digital fabrication technologies, including a customized robotic timber mill, is established to enable the manufacture of the heterogeneous shell components. Ultimately, the Timber Structure Enterprise Pavilion as the demonstration and evaluation of this method is fabricated and assembled on site through a notational system to indicate the applicability of this research in practical scenarios.
