From my alternative site digifab.wordpress.com, i have posted some student´s work from the class “tecnologias avanzadas en arquitectura” (advanced technologies in architecture), this is a class from the master in architecture program of the Catholic university of Chile. im really happy with the results. the students are using rhino for the modeling (grasshopper , some rhinoscript, paracloud) and they are motivated. The main objective its to produce a full size mockup based on the work on the surface ( a complex one), producing the milled wood components in the CNC router that we have in the laboratory. then the students do some vacuum forming with HIPS ( high impact polyestyrene) to produce the skin of the surface.
take a look of the work of the class im teaching, i’m the colaborator in that class of the architect Claudio Labarca, coordinator of the digital architecture in the university.
