title Articulated Timber Ground, Making Pavilion as Pedagogy

summary Designing and making a pavilion within a studio setting has been undertaken by various educators and researchers as a valuable pedagogy in the past 10 years. It aims to construct a collaborative environment that allows students to develop an integrated approach to learning; through association, teamwork and creative collaboration. Usually the tacit knowledge applied and acquired through making, and the knowledge of design strategy and analysis are separated in the way they are taught; it is often difficult to integrate these within the same coursework which often leads to students using digital software and fabrication tools as problem solving devices. This paper looks at an integrated approach to learning computational design and digital fabrication through the making of a pavilion by a Master level design studio. The paper discusses the pedagogy of making through creative collaboration and integrated workflow. It focuses on the use of digital and physical prototypes as devices to stimulate an oscillating dialogue between problem solving and puzzle making; a counterpoint for students to develop and search for new knowledge in order to create personalised learning experience. The paper concludes with an examination on the limits of digital prototype when interfaced with physical environment.
