title Simplified for Resilience: A parametric investigation into a bespoke joint system for bamboo
source SIGraDi 2016 [Proceedings of the 20th Conference of the Iberoamerican Society of Digital Graphics - ISBN: 978-956-7051-86-1] Argentina, Buenos Aires 9 - 11 November 2016, pp.405-411
summary Research reveals that most of the structural failures in a natural disaster are related to improper construction assembly methodologies related to human errors. This paper aims to reduce human errors in the building process by taking advantage of computational tools, and using a renewable building material. The research investigates the creation of a novel structural system for bamboo that is able to be repaired, replaced, altered, and easily assembled to restore any damaged building structure. Bamboo is an organic product with diameters that are irregular and unpredictable. The inconsistency in this natural product requires an adaptable construction methodology that responds to its organic nature. A customised joint system is created using parametric software that quickly adapts to the irregularity of the bamboo and are then fabricated using additive printing techniques. The parametric software gives unlimited control of the joint system based on the programmed relationships between the differentiations of each unique bamboo connection. Fabricating each unique joint gives a secure connection at each intersection facilitating an adaptable architecture, whilst reducing construction waste. This paper introduces the groundwork for the implementation of “on-site” manufacturing of a framework joint system. The manufacturing utilises the power and performance of a parametric platform with the technology of bespoke three-dimensionally printed joints – a flexible system that can respond to organic materials and natural external conditions
