summary The paper aims to address methods of realizing computationally generated self-organizing systems on a one-to-one scale with the employment of a singular material system. The case study described in this paper is the outcome of an investigation which has explored earth scaffolding, fabric form-work, and concrete materiality during an international three-week architecture workshop. Real-time generative form-finding methods based on branching and bundling systems in nature have been developed and simulated in an open-source programming environment. The outcome of the simulation stage has been analyzed structurally via Finite Element Analysis (FEA), results of which have served as inputs for the fine-tuning of the simulation. Final three-dimensional geometry has been fabricated by employing fabric, essentially forming the fabric form-work. Fabric form-work is then laid on top of the earth scaffolding, followed by the process of concrete casting. From a pedagogical point of view, the research focuses on the integration of digital design techniques between various design/architecture/analysis platforms combined with basic and advanced techniques of construction within a limited time frame.abstract here by clicking this paragraph.
