title Connecting Timber Sheet Materials to Create a Self-Supporting Structure using Robotic Fabrication and Computational Tools
source D. Holzer, W. Nakapan, A. Globa, I. Koh (eds.), RE: Anthropocene, Design in the Age of Humans - Proceedings of the 25th CAADRIA Conference - Volume 1, Chulalongkorn University, Bangkok, Thailand, 5-6 August 2020, pp. 85-94
summary The research developed in this paper is the workflow to create a self-supporting structure from sheet materials using robotic fabrication and computational tools. This research focuses on timber sheet materials, as timber is a material that can be altered in a variety of ways. Japanese timber connections were a strong influence for this research, due to its prolonged lifespan and sustainable advantages. In the past, timber fabrication techniques have been limited due to design limitations. This research explored how current technology, specifically parametric software combined with robotic fabrication, can create timber connections to connect sheet materials at different angles. This method was utilised to repurpose the concept of sheet materials towards a complex structure, which adopted the idea of mass customisation over mass production. This can help reshape the future of architecture through the use of advancing technology and sustainable assembly techniques using timber to timber joints.
