title Multi-dimensional Medium-printing - Prototyping Robotic Thermal Devices for Sculpting Airflow
source Kepczynska-Walczak, A, Bialkowski, S (eds.), Computing for a better tomorrow - Proceedings of the 36th eCAADe Conference - Volume 1, Lodz University of Technology, Lodz, Poland, 19-21 September 2018, pp. 841-850
summary This research investigates the design and prototyping of fabrication machines that utilize multi-dimensional printing techniques to sculpt an invisible medium- airflow, inspired by its unique materiality, philosophical value, sensorial aspects, and increasing considerations of atmosphere and climate in architectural research and design. A series of robotic thermal devices were developed to modulate animated geometry sequences through scripted movements, designated coordinates, and temperature fluctuations. This paper elaborates in depth multi-stage developments and experiments that integrate various systems, fabrication processes, optical experiments and computational analysis. It situates the experimental process of the medium-driven fabrication with possible applications in architectural design as envisioning alternative environmental systems utilizing thermal byproducts under aesthetic and experiential considerations.
