title Materiality in Its Minimum - Minimum Material Consumption through Design with Mathematics
source Parametricism Vs. Materialism: Evolution of Digital Technologies for Development [8th ASCAAD Conference Proceedings ISBN 978-0-9955691-0-2] London (United Kingdom) 7-8 November 2016, pp. 29-38
summary Contemporary practice of architecture has extensively utilized computation in its processes, which has brought lots of potentials like explicit integration of mathematics with design. This helped designers in different ways, ranging from modeling complex forms to simulating material behavior. Through presenting two experimental projects, this paper discusses how mathematical form-finding and math-driven form generation techniques could help to achieve not only complex designs, but also products which are optimized in their material use. This is a study to use mathematical functions in favor of mass reduction, as a sustainable design approach.
