Project Details:

Type: Academic
Class: ELDS 745 | Spring 2013
Professor: Ryan Bacha
Software: Rhinoceros, CAD, Illustrator
Materials: Corrugated Board, Laser Machine

Project Description:
It focuses on the inherent value of digital prototypes to evaluate the viability and performance of the design intent with respect to material selection, methods, and the implications of assembly to document the fabrication process.The Concept was to develop the Waffled Green Wall prototype to create a diverse connections between the spaces and allow multiple use of the structure as book shelve or showcase and at same time grow portable vegetation to filter the interior space.

Materials: 3-axis CNC Machine,
Laser Machine, High-Density Foam

Project Description:

The course examined the fundamental principles of advanced digital prototyping and fabrication methods like Contouring, Folding, Paneling, Corbelling, and Cross-Sectioning forming for architecture and building design. It focuses on the inherent value of digital prototypes to evaluate the viability and performance of the design intent with respect to material selection, methods, and the implications of assembly to document the fabrication process.

The fun-fund raising from last quarter fabrication and prototyping class with Prof. Bacha at SCAD Sand Art Festival, Wind Sculpture category.  A team effort fund raising for our so called final project! We used 2X2 inches squares of different matte and gloss photo film to showcase a photo booth like wind sculpture. The efforts can be seen below in slideshow:
