title Emergent Constructions: Experiments Towards Generative On-Site Design and Build Strategies Using Customised Digital Devices
source ACADIA 12: Synthetic Digital Ecologies [Proceedings of the 32nd Annual Conference of the Association for Computer Aided Design in Architecture (ACADIA) ISBN 978-1-62407-267-3] San Francisco 18-21 October, 2012), pp. 539-545
summary This paper presents a currently ongoing research trajectory, investigating integrated design and build workflows using generative design strategies and custom built fabrication devices. The aim of the research, which is being developed through a series of experiments and workshops, is to explore scenarios in which these work-flows can produce emergent architectural structures which are highly adapted towards the intended performance within their specific context and site. The research has produced a number of installations and prototypical structures which explore practical and theoretical dimensions of the methodology explored. It introduces intriguing new scenarios in which the architects' role is focused on the indirect control of the process of design, allowing for a more open-ended process of negotiation between structure, users and environment.
