title Spaceship Tectonics - Design Computation Pedagogy for Generative Sci-Fi Building Skins
source Kepczynska-Walczak, A, Bialkowski, S (eds.), Computing for a better tomorrow - Proceedings of the 36th eCAADe Conference - Volume 2, Lodz University of Technology, Lodz, Poland, 19-21 September 2018, pp. 357-366
summary Sci-Fi architecture, both as digital or physical representations, despite their inherent intricacy, lack the spatial depth of a structured interior, material definition or program information. This discrepancy, combined with the plethora of available sci-fi motifs, inspired the development of an integrated teaching approach with the academic objective to utilize computational methods for analysis, reproduction and composition of generative building skins, and consequently architecture, which aims to be 'outside of this world' as a sci-fi design quality-enriched result of our reality. The proposed methodology is implemented at the Spaceship Architecture Design Studio at the University of Innsbruck. Its capacity to achieve a successful assimilation of design computation in the curriculum is subsequently assessed by the documentation and quantitative/qualitative evaluation of the designs developed during two academic years, in line with a generative facade articulation schema, without however undermining the rest of the virtues of tectonic spaces. The introduction of a theme like sci-fi where the design objective is not clearly defined, is examined in comparison to similar approaches, towards the corroboration of the pedagogical method proposed.
