Gestural Fabrication

Students: Brian Harms
Studio Title: GESTURAL FABRICATION ESTm Summer 2013
Instructor: Marcelo Spina & Andrew Atwood

GESTURE+FORM+FABRICATION

This project is an investigation of the translation of real-time motion data into robotic motion paths. Through the implementation of an intuitive interface (which behind the scenes is comprised of: Leap motion + Rhino + Grasshopper + Firefly + Crane)  designers can go straight from fluid hand-motions to freeform physical objects. The goal is to circumnavigate mediation of the input by traditional 2D digital interfaces (mouse, keyboard, monitor), and allow for 3D input to translate directly to 3D output.

K|loud Final

Students: Eugene Kosgoron , Peter Kaoud
Studio Title: Spina Vertical Sum2012 – ESTm/Artificial Clouds
Instructor: Marcelo Spina

Nube

Students: Amir Habibabadi,Pablo Osorio, Francisco Moure
Studio Title: Spina Vertical Sum2012 – ESTm/Nube
Instructor: Marcelo Spina


This project is a design proposal that explores a new way of controlling direct sun light at the stadiums in Qatar’s 2022 FIFA soccer world cup. It is also part of an ongoing study of new materials applied to architecture such as high performance fibers and carbon composites.

Knitted Cloud

Students: Mehrzad Rafeei, Somayyeh Ramezani
Studio Title: Spina Vertical Sum2012 – ESTm/Artificial Clouds
Instructor: Marcelo Spina


Our design approach is generating a “network Cluster” of smaller units rather than a large mega structure aiming to shield large sporting events in Qatar Stadium from direct sunlight while providing favorable climate environment. Regarding to that, the idea that we took is based on the Catenary System which commonly used to evenly apply pre-tensioning loads on to membranes for space inflatable structures.

Geode Two

Students: Steve Moody
Studio Title: Spina Vertical SP2012 – Tenuous Equilibrium, Busan Concert Hall
Instructor: Marcelo Spina

The project is an attempt to apply a single primitive via bounded random aggregation to produce form, dimension, program, and space in the context of a concert hall and performing arts center in Busan, South Korea.
