The design brief required a self standing structure specifically designed for our workspace in the CAAD building. This should bring into play ideas on function and context, related to our conceptions of our working environment and ideas on materiality related to the distinctive properties of the ytong blocks that were set as the building material. The design process should take into consideration the fabrication capabilities of the Kuka Robot and the great potentials opening up with the interplay between physical tools and computational processes.
The teams submitted their proposals for the 1:1 model to be fabricated and installed in the CAAD premises. The entries were expected to present no more a final design, than a design strategy tailored to the CAAD chair’s approach.
