title Experimental Design-Build: Teaching Parameter-based Design
source Computation: The New Realm of Architectural Design [27th eCAADe Conference Proceedings / ISBN 978-0-9541183-8-9] Istanbul (Turkey) 16-19 September 2009, pp. 153-158
summary We present a student design class, in which experimental full-scale parametric objects are planned and built. The class explores the possibilities of digital production chains in which CAAM techniques driven by parametric modeling can expand the range of possibilities for designing and producing architecture. We show how those possibilities and techniques can be integrated into architectural education in facilitating a transition from digital design to actual object. The didactic challenge represents teaching a methodological approach towards parameter-based design, its transfer into a software program and the choice of construction and production method.

title The Digital Ornament using CAAD/CAAM Technologies
source International Journal of Architectural Computing vol. 4 - no. 1, 33-49
summary New digital technologies are challenging the traditions of the architectural design methodology, the relationship between context and design, and the dependency on skilled workmanship for the fabrication of beautiful and complex architecture. Intellectually, applications of digital technologies are also allowing for the reinvestigation, reinterpretation, and redevelopment of historical concepts, theories, and skills[1]. Our focus of ornament in this paper is presented as a constrained architectural testing ground, a reduced issue that still addresses the primary issues of geometry, aesthetics, individualism, and the transferal of design to materiality. Our work on digital ornament combines the traditionally intuitive skills of geometric & graphic manipulations with easily edited input (variables and digital images), control through parametric programming, and automated output (CNC manufacturing). The combination of these processes allows for efficient diversity and uniqueness of design, while also compensating for the increasing cost and declining availability of skilled artisans for the physical fabrication. The presented projects in teaching, research, and professional activities demonstrate our ongoing experiments with new technologies of programmed surface modeling and computer numerically controlled manufacturing (CNC manufacturing). This work has been incorporated in real world projects, both in the revitalization historic buildings, and in new applications of ornament in contemporary architecture.

title Parametric Origami: Adaptable temporary buildings
source FUTURE CITIES [28th eCAADe Conference Proceedings / ISBN 978-0-9541183-9-6] ETH Zurich (Switzerland) 15-18 September 2010, pp.243-251
summary We employ the possibilities of parametric modeling software andcustomized mass production machinery to develop a design for adaptablemultifunctional temporary medium size buildings made from recyclable lightweight materials and built a prototype from cardboard. We developed agrasshopper script that controls the geometry of a self-supporting arc made from a folded plane. The project is conducted as an experimental design-and-build university course that familiarizes students with parametric thinking and designing and with carrying out a project from initial concepts through tobuilding a 1:1 prototype. This project is part of an ongoing series of investigative design & build courses integrating current design possibilities and construction methods.

title A Parametric-Typological Tool: More Diversity for Mass Produced Single Family Homes Through Parametrized Design and Customized Mass Production
source Computation: The New Realm of Architectural Design [27th eCAADe Conference Proceedings / ISBN 978-0-9541183-8-9] Istanbul (Turkey) 16-19 September 2009, pp. 409-416
summary We present a research program in which a plug-in tool for the generation of vertically stacked single family homes is developed and implemented in the software Autodesk Revit Architecture. The parametrized typology will provide for more variety, individuality and appropriateness in the homes themselves and also in the urban structures created by them. CAAM methods furthermore drastically reduce the production costs. The research is government-funded and sponsored by the building and software industry with the aim to both extend the functionality of an existing software package and to build a prototype urban development.

title Applying a Digital Chain in Teaching CAAD and CAAM
source Digital Design: The Quest for New Paradigms [23nd eCAADe Conference Proceedings / ISBN 0-9541183-3-2] Lisbon (Portugal) 21-24 September 2005, pp. 125-129
summary This paper describes a successful approach in teaching caad and the use of state-of-the art caad-technologies in postgraduate architectural education. Since it’s first set up in the year 2002, variations of this curriculum were applied on an annual basis. Its main characteristic is the efficient transfer of knowledge and practical use of more than 10 central techniques in CAAD/CAAM (computer aided architectural manufacturing) within the tight period of 6 months. Recipients were international postgraduate students from the field of architecture and related disciplines. Their studies were a full-time course lasting 12 months with six months modular introduction and 6 months individual and group thesis works.
