Digital Wood - Master's Thesis Research Project by Viktoria Henriksson


Digital Wood - Design & fabrication of a full-scale exhibition structure in plywood
Team: Viktoria Henriksson, Emil Poulsen and Oscar Gillkvist
 
Viktoria Henriksson has been kind enough to share with us her Master's Thesis research project, for which Rhino and Grasshopper were used as the primary design tools.

"Plywood has many times before been used for temporary structures in architecture, mainly because of the relatively low cost and availability. Plywood is often seen as a perfectly flat sheet material, free from otherwise common properties of timber such as imperfections and grain direction. However, plywood is actually a diverse material with inherent dynamic properties associated with the tree it once came from. This is something that is rarely seen in contemporary plywood design but could be emphasized and more accessible through computational design and digital fabrication.

The research project “Digital Wood” investigates and utilizes the bending properties and dynamics of plywood through the use of computational design and digital fabrication. Through a design-by-research approach using full-scale experiments and digital tools, this project seeks to explore new perspectives of programming timber in the field of architecture and design.


In collaboration with industrial partners, a temporary structure was designed and built for the Wood and Technology exhibition in Gothenburg, Sweden to function as a gathering place and visual label for visitors, while exploring new unexpected ways of implementing wood.


3d-modelling in Rhinoceros and Grasshopper 3D played a major role both in the design process and the realization of the pavilion. Custom tools and scripts were developed and used for everything from generation of cutting patterns to automating the production of CNC files. With the use of modern technology and new treatment methods, “Digital Wood” pushes the boundaries for how conventional material can be used to unleash new creative potentials".

Kine[SIS]tem International Conference + Summer School - June 19-30, Lisbon (Portugal)


Kine[SIS]tem International Conferece + Summer School
June 19-30, 2017
Lisbon (Portugal)

Kine[SIS]tem International Conferece + Summer School is an international event formed by two interrelated moments: Kine[SIS]tem - From Nature to Architectural Matter, International Conference and Kine[SIS]tem - Shading Systems Summer School.


Kine[SIS]tem - From Nature to Architectural Matter, International Conference
June 19-20, 2017
Lisbon (Portugal)

Kine[SiS]tem – From Kinesis + System. Kinesis is a non-linear movement or activity of an organism in response to a stimulus. A system is a set of interacting and interdependent agents forming a complex whole, delineated by its spatial and temporal boundaries, influenced by its environment.

How can architectural systems moderate the external environment to enhance comfort conditions in a simple, sustainable and smart way? This is the starting question for the Kine[SiS]tem’17 – From Nature to Architectural Matter International Conference.

For decades, architectural design was developed despite (and not with) the climate, based on mechanical heating and cooling. Today, the argument for net zero energy buildings needs very effective strategies to reduce energy requirements. The challenge ahead requires design processes that are built upon consolidated knowledge, make use of advanced technologies and are inspired by nature.


Keynote Speakers - Confirmed:

Manuel Kretzer
- Dr. Sc. ETH Zürich Architect and Advanced Materials Specialist. Visiting professor in Digital Crafting at the Braunschweig University of Art. Partner at responsive design studio,Cologne, Germany.
Bob Sheil - Architect, Director of The Bartlett School of Architecture, Professor in Architecture and Design through Production, and the School’s Director of Technology.
Alex Haw - Director of the award-winning UK art/architecture practice atmos.

We invite you to submit and present an original contribution for Kine[SIS]tem'17. All submissions are peer-reviewed and considered for selection by the Scientific Committee. All accepted full papers will be published.  Please observe the submission types and deadlines on the website.

Sofia (Bulgaria)
The international workshop Correlated Intricacies V1.0 focuses on the development of complex architectural detailing with large variety of components comprising the whole process -- from concept through developed design and analysis to digital fabrication and preparation of working drawings. Details will be evaluated down to the point of screws, nails, joints, slots, weather stripping, etc.

Correlated Intricacies V1.0 begins with expanding the knowledge of existing examples of node based architectural systems and details currently used in architecture. Participants will be guided to develop skills of algorithmic design and computational strategies applicable for custom designed node intersection systems in the detailing of point and line connections.

The participants will learn how to model and modify different details of a system parametrically, depending on the shape and purpose of the structure. Participants will choose an existing detail system to study its components and assembly. Each team will develop their own system of details, based on the systems they have studied, using parametric tools and analysis. This detail will be built parametrically so that elements of the assembly can be modified variably while informing the other parts of the detail on how to adjust to these changes.

What you will learn
  • Introduction to Grasshopper and algorithmic geometry
  • Parametric modeling of complex geometries in Grasshopper and Rhinoceros 5
  • Deconstruction and evaluation of detail components
  • Modeling of parametrically linked systems
  • How to set up a part to part relationships with variables

February 16-19, 2017 from 10:00 to 18:00
Obere Amtshausgasse 49/2, 1050
Vienna (Austria)

Algorithmic Accessories V2.0 is a workshop that combines algorithmic methods for 3D modeling with the digital fabrication of jewelry.

The new emerging technologies in design and prototyping make mass customization of everyday objects more and more attractive. Parametric design is a powerful tool that allows users to become designers, and have some input on the variation of the product they wish to own. Combine this with the advantages of digital fabrication and 3D printing can and does make a revolution in many different areas of design, including fashion, where up till now the buyers have been given a pre-ordered choice only with very little to say when it comes to individual expression.

This workshop explores the new customization capabilities of jewelry through the process of parametric design and digital fabrication. The results can be not only visually attractive and unique products, but also a whole new design tool set for the individual that save great amounts of time for manufacturers and effort in creating once off and personally emotive pieces. The notion is to move away from the mass production, consumption, and waste of the past decades.

What you will learn
  • Introduction to Grasshopper and algorithmic geometry
  • Basics in creating accessories for wear on the human body
  • Creation and customization of complex geometries through parametric modeling and script writing
  • Fabrication tools
  • KeyShot

NODO, Carrer Almogavers 141
Barcelona, Spain


Noumena, in collaboration with NODO, has organized SYNTHESIS OF STRIP PATTERN, a workshop to explore computational design, material behavior, and fabrication strategies.

Stripe patterns in nature vary widely in scale, from the smallest molecules to skin pattern of plants and animals. These patterns can also be identified in the cell growth, which shows how their intensification in specified areas makes the surface transform and curl on itself. SYNTHESIS OF STRIP PATTERN explores the generation and the properties of such structures through parametric techniques using algorithms to create complex hyperbolic geometries.

SYNTHESIS OF STRIP PATTERN will be led by Djordje Stanojevic and Georgi Kazlachev for the first time together in Barcelona.

Note: This workshop is only for students or professionals with already consolidated computational skills. Knowledge of Rhinoceros and Grasshopper is mandatory.

Early-bird price available until February 20, 2017.
