Elective Course
The Elective Course establishes a conceptual framework of the digital in architecture with special regard to digital and robotic fabrication. Departing from the work of Gramazio Kohler Research, Fabio Gramazio and Matthias Kohler presented the digital and its concepts in architecture and current developments in the field of digital fabrication. In two seminars knowledge on design strategies based on digital methods were related to the students' own design approach and its wider context.
The exercises focussed on simple yet powerful methods of digital, computational and algorithmic design as well as digital fabrication techniques. Based on the Brick Bond design examples, the students learned the basics of parametric and algorithmic modelling using Rhino and Grasshopper software. Through 3D Printing the designs were realized.
