SUTD/ AAL: Parametric Design Workshop
Archifest Pavilion, Marina Bay Sands : October 4-5, 2014
In the first part of this workshop, participants learn basic parametric design principles in Rhinoceros and Grasshopper. In the second part, participants apply these skills to collaboratively design a parametric high-rise. Participants will also learn to prepare a scale model of the tower for digital fabrication. A scale model of the participants’ final design will be fabricated on a 3D-printer and exhibited for the remainder of the Archifest. After the end of Archifest, participants can collect their part of the tower.
Basic familiarity with CAD or 3D-Modelling software is required.
Participants should bring their own laptops with the software installed prior to the event.
The registration fee is $75.00 for the public and $50.00 for students.
Tonkin Liu has published a new book titled The Evolution of Shell Lace Structure, coinciding with an exhibition at the Royal Institute of British Architects.
Shell Lace Structure is a tailored, single surface structural technique invented by the London based architecture practice Tonkin Liu. The result of five years of intense practice-based research in collaboration with engineers at Arup, the technique integrates structural principles expressed in 500 million years of variation in shells, the ancient art of tailoring, and cuttingedge digital manufacturing technology, resulting in ultra-strong, lightweight, and visually unique architectural structures.
