title A Swell Project: Between Parametrics and Fabrication
source Parametricism (SPC) ACADIA Regional 2011 Conference Proceedings
summary As a case study, Swell serves as: 1) an investigation into architectural ornamentation using a contemporary framework, as directed through specific modes of research, 2) a study in fabrication materials and methods, especially through the realization of form, and 3) as a pedagogical tool, loosely assembled through real and virtual space. This essay will focus mainly on the fabrication methods in terms of why and the pedagogical research initiatives and reactions that went into the design of Swell. The project was conceived through a summer studio which was formed to investigate tools and methods available at the Texas A&M Architecture Ranch and to further the local pedagogical direction toward fabrication in architectural design at Texas A&M University as a whole. That is to say, there was no specific agenda toward parametrics, form, research, technology, or the like. At the same time, as the research continued, certain decisions were cast in terms of technology, sensibility, site, etc. informed by research, iterative processes, or parametric evaluation that ultimately formed the project as it exists today.

title Weaving Methods in Architectural Design
source Parametricism (SPC) ACADIA Regional 2011 Conference Proceedings
summary In an effort to investigate surface logics consisting of highly porous, irregularly defined weaving systems a series of investigative strategies were employed. This paper discusses certain modes of research and their derivatives through a case study, Spu_lenkorb, as an entry into a digital fabrication competition by Texfab, in which the project received honorable mention. The initial form is conceived as a Möbius band, a geometrical variant of the pure mathematical “strip”. The base mesh of the initial form is developed using the software TopMod3D and Maya. This base mesh is then processed into a woven object using internally developed weaving software.
