title Capturing the Infinite: Bottom up CAD - CAM Technology for Regenerative Development
source CAADRIA 2007 [Proceedings of the 12th International Conference on Computer Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia] Nanjing (China) 19-21 April 2007
summary In most design practices there is a division between the generation of information to describe buildings and the production of information to construct them. Today architects are in charge of the design of the building (aesthetics) while the contractor is accountable for the means of construction (tectonics). The advent of digital technologies within the field of architecture however has begun to cause and will continue to cause fundamental changes within the AEC industry. The Paper describes a possible scenario where a Bottom Up, part to whole approach to architecture can be adopted using the freedom afforded by Parametric Design within the CAD-CAM environment. This approach is explored through the design of a smart block in concrete that is integrated into a wall system.
