Formworks is an advanced Digital Fabrication course with the VIsual Studies Program at GSAPP, Columbia University.
Formworks explores problems of digital ornament, non-repetitive manufacturing and the effects of machines and materials on the architectural design process. We will design and build our own dynamic formworks actuated and controlled by a Grasshopper-based system and Arudino microcontrollers. See the syllabus and schedule here.
The Fall 2014 class will be held in Avery 115 from 7 to pm.
Formworks is co-taught by Joshua Draper and Eric Hagan.
