title Design by Computation - A material driven study

summary The paper aims to address methods of creating a system for design through material studies that are employed as feedback on a computational digital model. The case study described in this paper is the output of an exploration that has investigated physical transformation, interaction and wood materiality over the period of two weeks of the international architecture programme AA Athens Visiting School in Greece. Real-time performative form-responsive methods based on bending and stretching have been developed and simulated in an open-source programming environment. The output of the simulation has been informed by the results of material tests that took place in parallel and have served as inputs for the fine-tuning of the simulation. Final conclusions were made possible from these explorations that enabled the fabrication of a prototype using wood veneer at one-to-one scale. From a pedagogical aspect, the research main focus is to improve the quality of architectural education by learning through making. This is made possible using advanced computational techniques and coupling them with material studies towards an integrated system for architectural prototypes within a limited time frame.
