title Craft and Digital Consequences - Micro-Hybrid Explorations at (Full) Scale

summary This paper presents a comprehensive project-based research investigation that uses both drawing and modeling to challenge conventional design space. Situated at the University of Kentucky-College of Design Applied Computation Center (CoDACC) in Lexington, KY, this independent undergraduate research project reveals an immersive framework that develops, evaluates, and assesses both graphic and three-dimensional information at full scale. This research provides a framework that seamlessly negotiates analog and digital means of communication and prototyping. This paper outlines the micro-hybrid design process to frame topics germane to today's increasingly complex built environment. The paper also includes the micro-hybrid decision-making matrix and discusses the evaluation of the produced artifacts. The research demonstrates how the micro-hybrid process can reveal both the craft and consequences related to design experimentation and construction. Further, the micro-hybrid process has been shown to deepen a student's understanding of the composition of materials and a student's awareness of forces and structural loads, which in turn has produced a deeper appreciation for the principles of structures and an improved mastery of manufacturing jointing details.
