summary Topological interlocking is a concept developed in material science. Solid modules form a structural system without the use of glue or mortar. Given fixed boundaries the elements constrain each other kinematically. This project seeks to re-conceptualize the system within an architectural framework by embracing computational design, analysis and fabrication tools and procedures. The goal is to develop geometrical differentiated, reversible, force-locked systems and the processes and methods to design and manufacture them. Students of the Architecture and Performative Design Studio (APD) at the Staedelschule Architecture Class (SAC) and the author developed the presented projects. The paper discusses the pedagogical approach of starting a design research studio from a very narrow material system. The research is continued at the School of Architecture of the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) in Stockholm.
