TRANSLATE. STRUCTURAL DESIGN IN MATERIAL FABRICATION
De Lollis- Verano, Sapienza University of Rome, 00185 Rome, Italy, Rome, Italy
In this 5 day workshop we will translate the typical typology and materialisation of the house into the definition of surface active structures. We combine the system of geometry, structural design & fabrication and construction into a new era of architecture. TRANSLATE We follow three lines of thought to translate structural design in material fabrication. ultra lightweight, rethinking shape and material, single material components working with directionality of the elements and their connections to perform stability and for the third we will rethink definition of the brick. TUTORS Welcome speech: faculty dean Prof. FABRIZIO VESTRONI Opening Lecture: Prof. ANTONIO FIORAVANTI Ph.D. ARMANDO TRENTO Tutor: MANJA VAN DE WORP - NOUS ENGINEERING Assistant : ALDO SOLLAZZO - NOUMENA COMPUTATION We'll simulate structural behavior using computational tools as grasshopper3d + Karamba . The use of Grasshopper, Karamba and Digital Fabrication tools drive our evolutions of design. Structural design allows us to play with the type of forces in elements, orientation, force flow, geometry, restraints and connection. FABRICATION Digital fabrication will be involve to explore physical prototypes, storey boards of materials, structural principles and construction methodologies. We'll fabricate prototypes and models in one of the youngest and most powerful laboratories of fabrication in Rome: Save the Material.
