The studio MODULAR + MODULOR will continue the exploration of possibilities offered by computational technologies for timber architecture. This semester we will focus on two interconnected topics: combinatorial design for custom timber structures, and activity-based design methods. The goal is to create custom timber architectures which are adapted to the unique ergonomic of human body in motion.
Within the combinatorial design topic, we will explore how to create complex timber structures starting from standardized timber components (slats and plates), by combining them into modules, which can then be assembled into fully-functional architectural structures. With activity-based design, we will explore how to use computational methods to map the movement of the human body in space during the various activities associated with a living space and use this data to generate structures which are adapted to these specific movement conditions.
Together, these two strands will converge in the creation of complex structures for living spaces, which, rather than relying on fixed program definition, will be adapted to the unique activities and bodies of their inhabitants. The studio will continue in the following semester, where these prototypical activity-based spaces will be combined in an architectural solution, to be fabricated using EDEK’s robot lab.
