Following the large succes of the DTAL workshop in Bucharest, the self proclaimed DTAL team (Ionuț Anton & Dimitrie Ștefănescu), were invited by ASTA Cluj Association to hold a workshop on parametric design and digital fabrication in Cluj. The workshop was very nicely timed with Neil Leach’s conference in Cluj.
The workshop followed the already tested methodology of teaching and project development that was implemented in the Bucharest workshop. Participants were introduced to parametric design and digital fabrication techinques. After a series of trainging sessions they gained the necessary skill to develop small parametric design projects. The designs, done in small collaborative groups had also to keep in mind a specific fabrication technique that was used to fabricate all teh objects, a 2d cutting using a router of a flat sheet of plastic. All the projects done involved interlocking systems, a ”waffle” design, but managed to deliver a large variety in shape and concept.
