PINKI-SIL PROJECT


The Pinki Sil Project introduced students to parametric design through the platform of Grasshopper and digital fabrication. The project illustrated the workflow from a parametric model to digital fabrication and the materialisation of the physical object through the creation of a three dimensionally patterned resin tile. The project illustrated to students the power of parametric and computational design tools while reinforcing the importance of materiality and the interrelationship of digital tools with traditional construction process. The project was the result of the first week of the Digital Design + Fabrication Intensive Summer Workshop 17 Jan – 11 Feb, 2011, Faculty of Architecture, Building and Planning, The University of Melbourne.

TECTONIC REEF


The Tectonic Reef, an installation built on the beach during the St Kilda Festival 2011 was the result of the first initiative of the Ex-Lab, the Digital Design + Fabrication Intensive Summer Workshop 17 Jan – 11 Feb, 2011, Faculty of Architecture, Building and Planning, The University of Melbourne. The intensive 4 week workshop introduced students to advanced digital modelling and parametric design software with a focus on producing physical objects through different digital fabrication methods.
