In this paper, authors present a computational technique that aids with the design of structurally-sound metal frames, tailored for robotic fabrication using an existing process that integrates automated bar bending, welding, and cutting.
This paper by Sigrid Brell-Cokcan and Johannes Braumann, elaborates on the concept of production-immanent design for robotic fabrication.
This thesis by Guilherme Henrique Aciaioli de Sousa Barreto proposes a solution that allows the exploration of GD using the BIM paradigm, taking full advantage of its capabilities. The solution is an extension of Rosetta, a GD environment.
In this paper, author propose taking the use of computers in aiding architectural design one step further; information and data should INFORM the project, driving the creation of a building FORM enabling it to PERFORM at higher levels than traditional design.
The focus of the research presented in this paper by Tristan Al-Haddad asks how a designer can create a flexible system of physical making which can accommodate multiple programmatic functions within a smooth whole.
In this thesis, author defines, explores and evaluates A-BIM in the context of architectural design. Through a case study, she compares A-BIM to two other design approaches, namely an algorithmic approach to geometry-based CAD and a manual BIM approach.
