Reciprocal Frames Workshop

Type:

Parametric Design&Fabrication Workshop

Location:

Texas A&M University

Collaborators:

Prof. Alireza Bohrani

Keywords:

Workshop, Form Finding, Reciprocal Frames, 3d printing

Date:

Spring 2017

Status:

Completed

Description: This workshop focused on form finding of thin shells structures using agent based modelling and simulation techniques in conjunction with structural analysis. Emphasis was on introducitng computational formfinding in combination with a traditional building technique, that of reciprocal frames, and the adaptation of the generated structures based on the available material (paper tubes). During the workshop, participants were introduced into parametric form finding using physics solvers as well as an integrated design workflow which includes a set of programming and visual scripting and parametric tools.
