Digital Craft


Sophomore Studio

Spring 2016

Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta,, GA

This sophomore studio is organized in three stages that first, researches the application and principles of a craft based analog technique, second it develops a digital transformation of these techniques to generate architectural elements, and third it applies this research towards architectural solutions for space, structure and envelope. In each phase students are guided by setting rules and parameters while developing digital and analog techniques to extend craft towards the medium of design exploration. The overall agenda of the studio is to generate a consistent design methodology that is structured along the transformation of an analog technique towards a digital application that offer s parametric control, variability and execution.
