SoA - Computational Design Lecture Series
Parameter, Material, and Function in Computational Fabrication

Chengyuan Wei
Co-founder, Morphing Program LLC


Additive and robotic manufacturing have empowered designers to create forms of impressive complexity. However, digital manufacturing processes have more to offer beyond form manipulation: the control of material composition, geometry, and structure. For example, colored glass granules can be digitally composed to alter the light reflection and refraction in a glass window, the permeability of a woven panel can be dictated by the flowrate and federate of a robotic instability printing nozzle, and the self-morphing behavior of a flat fabricated formwork can be determined by the printing orientation. In this talk, Chengyuan will give a few examples in both product and architecture scales to demonstrate how function follows the process in the face of computational fabrication.
