Event Description

Studio Mode/modeLab is pleased to announce the first installment of the modeFab workshop series: Strip Morphologies II. Further information and registration can be found below. We hope to see you next month!

As a continuation of the Strip Morphologies workshop held in June 2010, Strip Morphologies II is a two-day intensive design, prototyping, and fabrication workshop to be held in New York City during the weekend of November 12-13, 2011. In a fast-paced and hands-on learning environment, this workshop will investigate the morphology of the ’strip’ by cross-linking developable surfaces and joining strategies. We will identify and exploit the constraints inherent in sheet material and CNC laser-cutting technology to explore and construct highly articulated material assemblies. Furthermore, the workshop will provide participants with instruction in digital fabrication techniques and direct access to CNC equipment.


This workshop will consist of a series of instructional lectures, open work sessions, and guided exercises, beginning with an introduction to Computational Geometry and Grid-Based Modeling. The workshop is structured to allow each participant time to iteratively develop design prototypes, moving quickly from digital design environments to material artifacts and back again throughout the weekend.

The workshop will progress through the following subtopics:

-Computational Geometry :: Introduction to Curves, Surfaces, Meshes in Rhinoceros

-Grid-Based Modeling + Implicit History :: Introduction to Paneling Tools

-Articulation + Influencers :: Proximity, Image Mapping, Curvature Strategies

-Detailing + Fabrication :: Prototyping Workflows with an 80W CNC Laser

As part of a larger online infrastructure, modeLab, this workshop provides participants with continued support and knowledge to draw upon for future learning.

Attendance will be limited to provide each participant maximum dedicated time with instructors.
