Growing Details

Danil Nagy, Carlos Olguin, David Benjamin

Architectural Design
2014

Abstract

The creation of the architectural detail generally involves the bringing together of discrete elements, systems and materials through mechanical attachment. A new software platform with an expansive and fluid approach to matter and scales may allow us to move from discrete elements to integrated systems, leading to a revolutionary world of architectural details. One application is multi-objective optimization of new human-scale structures. In the Evolving Chair project, for example, the design of a novel chair structure would not have been possible without the unique computation and manufacturing techniques provided by this new software platform. A manageable standalone object for a case study, the chair structure involved all of the same factors, opportunities and challenges of designing architectural details.
