A Shape to Fabrication 2023 Workshop – Robotic Fabrication for Industrialised Building Components.
Delivered by Zaha Hadid Architects Computation and Design Group (ZHACODE) and AKTII
Architectural Geometry (AG) focuses on the synthesis of shapes that guarantee structural and fabrication optimality. It is also closely aligned with and complementary to the development of robotic and digital fabrication (RDF) technologies and design methods. The workshop will explore the relevance of this state-of-the-art design and construction paradigm in the realm of complex, multi-objective, precision manufactured, computational geometry projects.
Specifically, the workshop is a collaborative design exercise exploring the design space of topologies that seeks synergies of tacit mesh modelling with computational form-finding, digital timber, and mass customisation of a kit of parts for industrial building components using RDF.
The 2-day workshop will provide a hands-on, introductory experience to prepare for both the imminent future of architectural design and construction and architectural practise; The content and tool-chains of the workshop are representative of the state-of-the-art in the AEC industry as it shifts from Building Information Modelling (BIM) for documentation to Design for Manufacturing and Assembly (DfMA)/ industrialised construction (IC) paradigm.
The Shape to Fabrication workshop series takes place in the days preceding the main conference (26-27th April). The workshops are all in-person (not online). This workshop takes place at Zaha Hadid, London.
