STUDY 002 _ Fabrication





PROJECT DETAILS: The contemporary designer is confronted with a seemingly endless cache of digital tools. Bringing about new challenges regarding the fabrication of increasingly complex geometries. This project seeks to explore the strengths and limitations of digital fabrication using Grasshopper and laser cutting techniques, thus becoming an exercise in creating and managing large quantities of unique elements in order achieve a desired effect.  The assembly pictured here is a snap shot of just one possible arrangement, ideally the fabrication technique developed here could be used to resolve nearly any complex form. 

TEAM:  Joseph Hines + Alex Dorn + Kateri Knapp + Andrew Pennachia

METHODS:  Rhinoceros, Grasshopper, Lasercutting
