summary This paper considers the opportunities of engaging in a creative dialogue between the physical and the digital, through the use of generative design tools and digital fabrication technologies. Digital iterations on an open-air installation for a pavilion take the shape of research in design. The design is partly driven by environmental parameters, such as the movement of the sun and shadows across a site in the Mediterranean. A fabricated microclimate is tailored through bespoke scripting and fabrication. In this project, rather than being used to optimise environmental parameters, scripting intents to offer a delightful milieu for human comfort.
