algorithmic modeling for Rhino
Weaving technique has been used in the craftman’s tradition for small artefacts like baskets, and lately brought in the industry for various new purposes. Since it possess delaminationfree and damage tolerant properties, this method can be considered as an alternative but efficient fabrication system. Three dimensional woven structures can be classified according to element interlacement types, having different level of rigidity and geometrical differentiation. These are considered suitable for representing surfaces as generation of form, extremely robust and lightweight. More potential in the architectural field can be achieved through the integration of computational tools for structural purposes, light filtering and new spatial qualities.
The workshop aims to explore the performance of a timber woven lightweight structure through digital fabrication. A thorough understanding the limits and advantages of the elastic bending behavior of the material, inform the design process through formfinding methods and the fabrication techniques. Explore multiaxial patterns and optimise the stress of the curvature through structural simulation and computeraided manufacturing. The goal is to realise and exhibit a prototype installation in scale 1:1 to activate SBODIO32 Warehouse.
