AP13.06

SurFaces!

The world is heating up, the education system is jeopardized, the financial system getting stronger, the social equity vanishing, the welfare collapsing, but Arquitectura Parametrica is back.
And is back to give you tools for a more computationally efficient environement!

Theoretical Part:
Prof. Ramon Sastre will cover SURFACES mathematics, generation and parametrization

Practical Part:

Ex3. Linear Works. Cut object Final day
Groups are asked to bring the physical object and prepare some slides to present the concept and the tricks. The challenge is to prove how efficient you can be with some simple cuts.
Packaging with curved folding, a triangulated landscape of one of your projects, a fingerjoint vase for your plants. (exemples from AP12), an light with interlocking pieces, a deployable pattern.. (lo que querais, pero que mole)
the only restrictions are:
-Objects have to be parametrically designed and digitally fabricated.
-cut with plakene material.
remember:
-at FAAV, you can get some samples of material (but if you want to go bigger, you can get as much as you want at “servei estació” shop)
-at FAAV, teachers and assitants can provide cut service, but it’s quite easy and you can learn to use it by yourself, so you can experiment and do some tests.
-you can cut in the laser too at TallerdeMaquetasLaser , but remember to schedule it with them.
-Please add some slides after your earlier slides of references. (They do not have to match!)
Make sure your name is in all of them, and put the number of your group.
in the post of the exercise you will find references, and ressources.

Ex4. Final Project. Chair. Presentation day

Groups are asked to present the idea. (some slides per group)
Focus in feasability, and efficiency in fabrication. Keep simple and elegant.
Highly recommended to start both 1:1 tests , and your parametric digital approach.

By the way, have you met Spanish Dancers?


don’t mess up with FlatWorms:

Both, very separated in phylum, share a very stylish way of swimming.
