fluxstructures.net - Topology optimized prototype finished

image002

The topology optimized prototype is now finished, and it will be revealed this Friday 11.00 at Paschal –Danmark, Ejby Inustrivej 122, 2600 Glostrup.

The prototype is designed via topology optimization techniques, and produced via large scale CNC-milling at Danish Institute of Technology.

Via the topology optimization procedure, material has been removed from inactive areas, leaving a complex, doubly curved geometry, that reveals the imbedded structural forces.

We warmly welcome you to participate in the opening event – hot and cold refreshments will be provided by Paschal.

The research is illustrated on this site, http://fluxstructures.net .

Workshop2: zip_shape

SchindlerSalmern are the inventors of the zip_shape a novel way of defining a curved surface.
We use Grasshopper to develop the geometry.

Welcome to the Digital Crafting Network

The research network investigates how new digital production methods are instigating profound changes in the design and building of architecture. Developing the term digital crafting, the network examines how the maturing of interfaces between the design space of the architect and the production space of the manufacturer is leading to the shaping of a new material practice in architecture. The research network is supported by The Danish Council for Independent Research, Humanities.
