title Soft Computing in Design: Developing Automation Strategies from Material Indeterminacies
source Gülen Çagdas, Mine Özkar, Leman F. Gül and Ethem Gürer (Eds.) Future Trajectories of Computation in Design [17th International Conference, CAAD Futures 2017, Proceedings / ISBN 978-975-561-482-3] Istanbul, Turkey, July 12-14, 2017, pp. 419-430.
summary Integrating concepts of soft computation into advanced manufacturing and architecture means perceiving the element of chance not as a hindrance, but as an opportunity. The projects examined in this manuscript explore opportunities for integrating material indeterminacy into advanced manufacturing by pairing a certain degree material unpredictability with the rigid order of machine control. The three projects described investigate three common categories of automated tooling including additive processes, subtractive processes and molding / casting processes. Each project begins with the question, what opportunities might arise from the mediation between material volition and computational control? By embracing indeterminate material results and taking an optimistic stance on chance and uncertainty, which are usually treated as problems rather than values, the intent is to provide ways for automating unique material effects and explore the opportunities for integrating soft computing in design.
