title Affordable Complexity - 'God's Eye' - Sukkahville 2013
source Thompson, Emine Mine (ed.), Fusion - Proceedings of the 32nd eCAADe Conference - Volume 2, Department of Architecture and Built Environment, Faculty of Engineering and Environment, Newcastle upon Tyne, England, UK, 10-12 September 2014, pp. 169-177
summary The paper presents a novel approach on the design of complex forms by re-formulating the relationships between form, structure, material, fabrication and construction. It is proposed that current design models are supplemented by feedback-enabled frameworks, integrating material properties, fabrication constraints and construction logistics. As such, a series of input parameters based on industry standards, filtered through physical testing and digital simulations, feed a central computational model. The outcome is weighed against a set of objectives towards an optimum design solution which embodies construction logic while ultimately opposing costly inflated ad-hoc solutions. Within the above framework and as part of a broader research conducted at [ARC], this paper illustrates a design methodology implemented at the case study of 'God's Eye', winning entry of Sukkahville 2013 International Design Competition. It is further supported that a high tech, interdisciplinary design process based on efficient material assemblies allows for a complex, yet efficient end result, through low tech affordable construction.
