Component Build Workshop

Workshop _ Grasshopper Module 02 held at OAR Bucharest

14-16 June 2013
Ruukki Romania

The idea behind the Component_Build workshop starts from investigating a basic architectural principle; that architecture is built on discrete elements. Most of the times, for an economy of construction these elements which composed a building were identical.
Today’s architects can work with construction components that can be unique, each one different than the other, but a product of the same technological chain. Therefore we can argue for the possibility of building with components that are different, yet similar at the same time. The architectural form is no longer constrained to seriality, but can incorporate a variability of components, generating a differentiation at a global level.
The workshop offered attendees an opportunity to design objects by modeling a single parametric element that would populate a surface. By formally adapting to local conditions, each component contributes to a general shape. The components geometry is influenced by several parameters as formal generators that follow structural performance, environmental performance and a certain fabrication and assembly process. The resulting objects from the workshop were exhibited in the Architectural Annual Bucharest 2013.

Workshop attendees: Ioana Anton, Adina Stanică, Mădălina Rădulescu, Simona Năstăsoiu, Carmen Tănase, Ileana Săvescu, Oana Truşcă, Anamaria Vâlcoreanu.
