Design to fabrication integration and material craftsmanship
macro and micro morphological differentiation in stone architecture based on material, structural and fabrication constraints and criteria
Abstract: This paper presents a computational design methodology through describing of a case study on stone building system. In addition to establishing a performance driven form-finding methodology, the objective is to redefine local craftsmanship methods as industrial fabrication techniques in order to introduce the constructability of the design solutions as one of the main performance criterion. Therefore, the focus of the methodology is to facilitate architectural design processes through developing of customized computational design tools and workflows for data integration and concurrent performance evaluation. The research starts with this hypothesis that the technological advancements in digital design and fabrication can lead to re-exploration and improvement of traditional building techniques with local materials. The paper explains different stages of the methodology and the way the chained design to fabrication processes would lead to constructible and structurally possible design solutions of small scale and simple symmetric design solutions to complex topologies at the scale of larger complex buildings.
