This workshop is design oriented meaning that specific design computation and materialization methods for data driven form finding will be explored. Each working cluster may apply and advance these methods considering specific design objectives.
The groups are divided in beginners and advanced as follows:

MSc 1
The goal for MSc 1 is to take a fragment of their design and apply specific methods of materialization design and parametric modelling. Each group, based on their focus may use robotic production, 3d printing and laser cutting or a combination of these to deliver a prototype of their design at the end the week.

MSc 3
For TUD and DIA MSc 3, the objective is to come up with a schematic design and apply methods of computation in macro to meso scales. By making design computation hackathon clusters in the beginning of the workshop and continuing after the midterm review with individual strategies to implement the methods which would lead to schematic architectural topologies.


Rhino, Grasshopper, and add-on plugins for parametrization, simulation and materialization will be used. Furthermore, the method of production such as 3d printing, laser cutting and robotic production will be informing the geometry.
