title Assisted construction of non-standard wooden walls and envelope structures by parametric modeling
source The next city - New technologies and the future of the built environment [16th International Conference CAAD Futures 2015. Sao Paulo, July 8-10, 2015. Electronic Proceedings/ ISBN 978-85-85783-53-2] Sao Paulo, Brazil, July 8-10, 2015, pp. 328.
summary We introduce a parametric modeling method in the field of computer-aided architectural conception, which aims to produce non-standard wooden walls and envelopes with CNC machinery. This method explores the application of polygonal cellular structures (as patterns) on facade and envelope interventions for new and old projects. We innovate by bringing the 3D production environment complexity into the conception model to improve the production of manifold woodworking items by CNC (Computer Numerical Control) 3D fabrication. A recent experimentation, tests the entire workflow from parametric modeling to production of two full-scale prototypes. The results prove the range of inputs offered by the method to be functional, though it needs various improvements in order to optimize parametric modeling and digital fabrication procedures. Future research will focus on treating a wider range of joints via parametric modeling and deal with joint creation regardless wall deformation to expand the morphological approach of non-standard wooden walls design.

title Assisted Construction of Non-Standard Wooden Walls and Envelope Structures by Parametric Modeling
source Emerging Experience in Past, Present and Future of Digital Architecture, Proceedings of the 20th International Conference of the Association for Computer-Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia (CAADRIA 2015) / Daegu 20-22 May 2015, pp. 653-662
summary The non-standard approach, widely discussed in the past years as Architecture progressively uses alternative design methods different from the Euclidean paradigm, has allowed architects to transform the way architecture is conceived and materialized. Such evolution uses computer-aided design along with automation in production to originate the environment for the aided architectural conception field in which we present a method, in its early development stage, intended to create non-standard walls and envelopes based on cellular patterns using wood as base material. We present the results obtained from modeling and building two full-scale prototypes of non-standard wooden walls.

title Interaction of analogic and digital workflows for architectural design and production
source SIGRADI 2015 [Proceedings of the 19th Conference of the Iberoamerican Society of Digital Graphics - vol. 1 - ISBN: 978-85-8039-135-0] Florianópolis, SC, Brasil 23-27 November 2015, pp. 77-85.
summary Architectural conception often faces challenges regarding the way a design becomes real. Today’s digital tools make possible to conceive and produce more defying architectural objects, which needs special abilities in the field of modeling and programming applied to design. The work presented in this writing, shows how actual digital methods of conception and production are underpinned on traditional procedures of conception and construction as it looks back on the way traditional techniques come to help the digital approach, when the latter is not achieved the way and by the means it is intended to.

summary The general thematic of our work tackles the question of the generative design tool efficiency to stimulate a creative architectural conception in the context of sustainable development. We focus our point of view on the conceptual research phases. We would like to characterise the human creative mechanisms in a situation of generative assistance where digital tool reveals some degree of autonomy and incorporates environmental constraints. Thus, we implement an evolutionary design tool in which energetic performances of the analogon are used in order to orient the evolution. Our tool is based on an interactive genetic algorithm that ensures both a broad exploration of the solutions space and the subjective user preferences accounting. Users groups were confronted to the tool in a conception situation and creativity was evaluated and characterized.

title Analysis and validation of the digital chain relating to architectural design process: Achievement of a folded structure composed of wood panels
source The next city - New technologies and the future of the built environment [16th International Conference CAAD Futures 2015. Sao Paulo, July 8-10, 2015. Electronic Proceedings/ ISBN 978-85-85783-53-2] Sao Paulo, Brazil, July 8-10, 2015, pp. 447-459.
summary The research presented in this paper revolves around the experimental development of the morpho-structural potential of folded architectural structures made of wood. The aims are to develop an innovative system for timber used in sustainable construction and to increase the inventory of wood architectural tectonics. First, this article provides a characterization of the digital chain associated to the development of non-standard folded structures consisting of wood panels. The purpose is to study the architectural design process from parametric modeling (through CNC machining) and assembly operations to production by way of a full-scale experimental pavilion. Secondly, a number of analytical experiments have been performed towards the completion of the pavilion, in order to validate the design process.

title Computer Design and Digital Manufacturing of Folded Architectural Structures Composed of Wood Panels
source Emerging Experience in Past, Present and Future of Digital Architecture, Proceedings of the 20th International Conference of the Association for Computer-Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia (CAADRIA 2015) / Daegu 20-22 May 2015, pp. 641-650
summary The research presented in this paper revolves around the experimental development of the morpho-structural potential of folded architectural structures made of wood. The aims are to develop an innovative system for timber used in sustainable construction and to increase the inventory of wood architectural tectonics. Laminated timber panels associated with "digital production line" approach have opened up new perspectives for the building industry in creating prefabricated wooden structures. This article provides a characterization of the digital chain associated to the development of non-standard folded structures which consist of wood panels by way of a full-scale experimental pavilion. The purpose is the study of architectural design process from parametric modeling (through CNC machining) and assembly operations to production. Towards the completion of the pavilion, a number of analytical experiments have been performed.
