Organic and circular architecture: tessellating space / digital fabrication / natural materials

Organic and circular architecture: tessellating space / digital fabrication / natural materials

The project proposes research into the perspectives of architecture by using natural and environmentally friendly materials through the design of organic spaces built by the use of the space tessellation technique. The control of the shape design is left to digital techniques both in the design idea and in the following prototype making step. The design of the shapes is achieved with the use of parametric and generative open source software while the building of the prototypes uses digital fabrication techniques. In particular, the spatial tessellation design with truncated icosahedron shapes will be explored and applied in two different directions: the first involves the use of laser-cut wood and printed pla; the second uses raw earth as the building material. Both experiences are planned as part of the 6th International Summer Academy 'Self Made Architecture', which will be held in two different weeks between July and September 2022.
