title {In}Formed Panels - Towards Rethinking the Precast Concrete Industry in the UAE
source T. Fukuda, W. Huang, P. Janssen, K. Crolla, S. Alhadidi (eds.), Learning, Adapting and Prototyping - Proceedings of the 23rd CAADRIA Conference - Volume 1, Tsinghua University, Beijing, China, 17-19 May 2018, pp. 287-296
summary The convergence of digital design and fabrication technologies have offered architects and designers the means by which to develop customized architectural artifacts, ones that goes beyond the standards of "one size fits all". Such applications have been applied extensively in various architectural practices, and specifically in the realm of industrialized building production, given that they present a suitable model. Although unrecognized within standard precast concrete production, current research acknowledges the need for advanced computer applications for shifting the industry into a digitized process. This paper represent a critical phase of an ongoing research endeavor that aims at rethinking the precast concrete production in the UAE, and MENA region for housing typologies. The project explores possibilities of a new protocol that is focused from design to production, relying on performative design strategies, and possible optimized for large format 3D printing of concrete elements. The aim is to develop an integrated façade panels system that is tailored for design and production; an approach that goes beyond current industry practices.

summary This study elaborates on recent efforts in applying Digital Prototyping strategies to realize a prefabricated construction system that allows for significant flexibility and adaptability in housing design. The rational of the described model is based on combining advanced BIM modeling with structural analysis, towards achieving high accuracy in the design phase, leading to subsequent precision in fabrication and assembly of a specific building system; the BONE Structure. Such an application aims at delivering significant levels of detailing in design and production of the system's components, thus supporting the intention of pre-defined assembly on jobsites, leveraging quality, and reducing waste. The paper represents a phase from a continuous research endeavor that aims at exploring technological enablers for mass customization in the housing realm, based on advanced levels of digitization of the design and production processes.
