Design-Tech Guest Lecture: Noam Dover

A lecture about the potential of mould-blown glass to tell the story of its own making process, and to reflect on its origins in both the DNA of craft and technological contexts. The practice is introduced to open digital fabrication technology while maintaining a link to craft history, recognising profound skills, innovations and knowledges, and how these knowledges accumulated into ordered techniques and material culture. The term ‘bridging’ suggests the connection between the history of vessel making and contemporary craft participation which embraces digital possibilities; mould making is the keystone in that bridging.

Design-Tech Guest Lecture: Arch. Guy Ostern

Throughout history, there has been a close connection between the architect, the design and the production methods used to realize her ideas. We are at the end of an industrial revolution in production tools based on cutting tools, printing and milling computer manufacturing. The new tools have changed the way we build buildings, but the existing design methods have not yet assimilated the limitations of the new production processes.
The research focuses on the development of computational tools that can be used to evaluate and improve the production processes of concrete elements of complex shapes. With geometrical analysis, the tools developed to predict the feasibility and resources required to create patterns for the elements. The use of geometrical analyzes is fundamentally different from the accepted approach in industry, which relies on long simulations. In the proposed method, it is possible to obtain an accurate assessment of the production potential with ease and in a fraction of the time required today.
The tools developed will enable architects to choose the most suitable means of production for their design and adapt the design to the chosen production methods.
