Below are a few of the 3D prints and laser cut models from the final project in the Fall 2009 Generative Design Computing Course. The project was about 3 weeks in duration - the students were asked to design a small pavilion using the parametric modeling techniques explored throughout the term.
Generative Design Computing.net
is a site that focuses on the utilization of computers in the design and fabrication of architecture, objects, installations, experimental work... The site primarily functions in support of several classes that I conduct at the Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning at the University of Michigan. They are Arch 591: Generative Design Computing, Arch 571: Digital Fabrication, and Arch 421: Geometric Modeling in addition to Graduate Design Studios. The site is also both an archive of video tutorials generated from those courses and a digital sketchbook of student work and related digital productions. In addition to teaching I’m also part of the design practice (area-architecture.com)
