R2R REEL to REAL

Studio Title: ESTm TestaVertical Studio FALL 2012
Instructor: Peter Testa with Brandon Kruysman, Jonathan Proto
AT: Peter Vikar

Architectural Form, Robotics and Cinematic Technique
R2R continues a series of Testa/Estm studios pioneering a new design paradigm at the convergence of Computation, Computational Materials, and Robotics. This new paradigm draws together digital abstraction and material agency within a Maya based real-time synchronous robotic shaping and simulation environment.The R2R studio is structured in two interrelated parts that combine innovative form making, and cinematic (post-animation) techniques. To support this architectural research program the studio will work on the conceptual design and prototyping of new design interfaces and representation techniques tied to specific geometries, material forms, and non-linear robotic design and fabrication workflows.

Suspended Depositions

Students: Brian Harms, Haejun Jung, Vince Huang, Yuying Chen
Studio Title: SUSPENDED DEPOSITIONS ESTm Fall 2012
Instructor: Peter Testa with Brandon Kruysman, Jonathan Proto
AT: Peter Vikar

This project aims to blur the line between processes of design and fabrication in the context of rapid prototyping by increasing the fluidity of the fabrication process through coordinated material and robotic processes. The project exploits feedback loops that allow the process to be used as a live generative form-finding tool as well as a method for reification of designed objects.

Approxymotion

Students: Peter A Vikar
Studio Title: Testa ESTm Vertical Spring 2012 ‘Real-Time’
Instructor: Peter Testa
AT: Curime Batliner
Research Fellows: Brandon Kruysman, Jonathan Proto, AT: Curime Batliner

Approxymotion is research project focusing on motion based forming. Its an attempt to apply the logic of digital design into the physical space.
Traditionally in architecture forms are transferred from paper/virtual space to building through fixed shaped moulds or as an assembly of many elements. My goal was to set the mould into motion, while maintaining the parametric nature inherited from the digital model. The result is a motion-form that computes between the initial motion input, the built geometry and its material properties.
