Our projects variously engage architectural robotics, simulation and visualization, game development, Geographic Information Systems, sustainable development, digital fabrication, as well as historical and theoretical aspects of computation in design.
Additive Manufacturing of Architectural Structures
The project focuses efforts in three areas: development of a novel concrete formulation, development of the 3D printing processes, and design and development of the overall 3D printing system necessary to print large structures.
Decoding and Recoding Informal Settlements Using Technology to Support Social Integration
The World experiences a significant growth in population coupled with fast urbanization processes particularly in the Southern hemisphere, which puts an enormous pressure on cities, giving rise to numerous social, infrastructural, eco
Woven Light Design of a Solar Fiber Tension Structure Shade Prototype Using Fiber Optic Strands
The Woven Light project is a solar fiber tension structure shade prototype that substitutes polymer fiber optic strands for solar photovoltaic [PV] strands to understand the problems and potential for PV fibers in fabrics.
Quantified Walk Project Knitted Legging to Quantify a Walk
The project is to fabricate a pair of wearable leggings embedded with sensors, which can help identify a person’s a gait or walk.
From Costuming and Dancing Sculptures to Architecture The Corporeal and Computational in Design and Fabrication of Lightweight Mobile Structures
This work describes a new approach to designing and fabricating costuming and dancing sculptures and the potential application of this system at the architectural scale.
FELT Panels for Textile and Emotion Study
FELT is a 5’ x 6’ computational textile panel which was designed to understand what emotion gets communicated to people using vision and touch from a still and shape changing textile.
