Collaborative Cloud is an installation which investigates distributed and
decentralized design and fabrication. The interface (in the link above)
allows you to design and give information to a piece of the cloud, thus
anyone can participate in the project's growth over the next 8 months. The physical construction will take place at the Disseny Hub Barcelona (DHUB)
in an exhibition titled: LABORATORI DE FABRICACIÓ:Nous escenaris del disseny i la producció tridimensional.
The Collaborative Cloud is a project created by the Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia (iaac.net)
, organized by the DHUB, and designed by Luis E. Fraguada, Victor Viña, Areti Markopoulou, and YOU!
The project was designed using processing for the interface, and GH / Rhnoscript for geometry and population. Once a user submits a design, the interface outputs a data file as well as a PDF of the piece ready for fabrication. As the database grows, these files are matched with a potential position on the cloud.
NOTE: More than likely you will get a JAVA warning asking you to block potentially unsafe applets...this applet is safe, so say NO when prompted.
NOTE: Some screen resolutions cause the interface elements to shift (especially noted in Safari)
