title Urban Furniture: Introducing Parametric Modelling and Digital Fabrication in a Part-time Study
source RESPECTING FRAGILE PLACES [29th eCAADe Conference Proceedings / ISBN 978-9-4912070-1-3], University of Ljubljana, Faculty of Architecture (Slovenia) 21-24 September 2011, pp.368-373

summary This paper discusses a design course covering the complete process chain from parametric modelling to digital fabrication. The course was run as a 2-semester elective course at Hochschule für Technik Zürich (HSZ-T), a Swiss University of Applied Sciences that offers as the only school in Switzerland a Bachelor of Architecture as an extra-occupational part-time study (joining ZHAW in 2012). The design objective was to develop pieces of urban furniture with help of parametric modelling and fabricate them with digital tools. Each of the eleven objects was realized in collaboration with a different professional enterprise chosen by the student, which let us experience a wide range of different materials and production technologies.
