Exploration of Form

Sanishka Balasooriya, First Year Computational Design
Cristina Ramos Jaime, Course Convenor

The 1st year Computational Design Studio 1 course introduces students to the relationships between mathematics and geometry to develop parametric definitions of 3D forms and to inform digital fabrication processes. The series of models shown here demonstrate variations of a thin-shell structure by architect Felix Candela scripted using Grasshopper to inform different additive and subtractive digital fabrication processes including laser-cutting and 3D printing.
