The Fractals Workshop

About the Workshop

The Fractals Workshop is based on generative growth of natural systems, mathematics and algorithm-based aggregation. This workshop is an adaptation of the teaching methods practiced at the Design Research Lab at the AA School of Architecture.

Generative Tessellations

Generative Tessellations

This thesis by Sara Torki Baghbadorani focuses on surface articulation of a shell structure constructed through a generative, parametric, modular design process. The shell form uses vault topology that adapts to varying site conditions such as topography and shape and that serves as contemplative space.

Generating Floor Plans

Generating Floor Plans

In the context of a research project by Katja Knecht at the Bauhaus-University Weimar concerned with the development of a creative evolutionary design method for layout problems in architecture and urban design.

Generative Architectural Form

Generative Architectural Form

This dissertation “An Evolution-Based Generative Design System: Using Adaptation to Shape Architectural Form” by Luisa Gama Caldas dwells in the interstitial spaces between the fields of architecture, environmental design and computation.

Generico Chair

Generico Chair

German designers Marco Hemmerling and Ulrich nether have produced the ‘generico chair’, a product based on generative and additive manufacturing technologies. the process for developing the form involved a detailed analysis of structural performance.

Parametric Timber Shell Structures

Timber Structures

This thesis by Alexandra Adelle Hinkel Cheng presents an example of a project executed in a co-rationalized manner through architectural and structural collaboration, using both digitally-integrated and analog models, for the design and construction of solid timber shells structures.

Incessant replication: Computational floor plan generation

Incessant Replication

This thesis by Ron Aasholm studies the process of promptly harnessing a computational design methodology and applies it to floor plan design. A specific evolutionary algorithm, found in Galapagos, is analysed and applied as it used in the model demonstration.
