title Mass-customization of Joints for Non-Standard Structures through Additive Manufacturing - The Trefoil and the TriArch projects
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. 197-204
summary Due to recent advancements, additive manufacturing technologies (AM) have finally addressed the scale and materiality in architecture. The exploration of its capabilities has balanced between the idea of printing entire structures and buildings, and that of printing just a set of selected parts that will integrate and affect the final construction. In the context of the latter approach, this paper present a research work developed by the Digital Fabrication Laboratory (DFL) at FAUP, which is focused in the design and fabrication of non-standard structures. By discussing the relevance of non-standardization in architecture, the paper describes and illustrates two projects that explore the mass production of customized joints through computational design methods and AM technologies - the TREFOIL and the TRI-ARCH structures. By focusing the attention just in the smallest component of a structure, the paper argues about the short-term potential of the real impact of AM technologies in the design thinking and materialization of architectural structures.
