title Elemental Intricacy - Architectural Complexity through Hard and Soft Material Agency
source Herneoja, Aulikki; Toni Österlund and Piia Markkanen (eds.), Complexity & Simplicity - Proceedings of the 34th eCAADe Conference - Volume 1, University of Oulu, Oulu, Finland, 22-26 August 2016, pp. 475-481
summary This paper presents the research completed in AA Greece Visiting School 2016 in Thessaloniki. The work integrates computational design and digital fabrication, focusing on aspects of complexity in the making of an architectural interactive prototype. During this research, the use of computation accommodates the design and fabrication of indeterminacy and complexity in different scales and levels . The prototype, Eos, projects on itself the urban characteristics of the city of Thessaloniki. The aim has been to enable a 1-to-1 scale structure to act as a hub of information, capable of communicating with human users through interaction. As the city of Thessaloniki is characterised by specific environmental and urban conditions, the prototype has been set to express such properties.
