( Gantenbein Winery in Fläsch)
P1 and P2 for Digital Fabrication studio had been fun – investigation of the Gantenbein Winery had revealed how integrative digital processes can be applied to architecture. “First-order” basic components, “second-order” geometric operations, mass customisation, digital fabrication machines, are just some of the burgeoning techniques being experimented and used today.
Now to harness all of that in the exploration of a new typological 12+1 Tower. With (a very versatile) Grasshopper, a model following up from the theme of directional translucency was created. Seems like it might be headed towards a facade-based design or mere multiplication to banality. Based on Shinya’s suggestions, I guess it’s a process of iterative thinking from both Component>System and System>Component, where a meaningful architecture is created.
