MAKING OF AN ARCHITECTURE FORM-AN OUTCOME OF MATERIAL SYSTEMS. PHYSICAL DIGITAL FABRICATION.

Vicky Achnani is an architect with undergraduate studies from CEPT, and has conducted various workshop courses related to making and physical - digital fabrication in CEPT and other institutes. He runs a small practice based in Surat.He is associated with CEPT since 3.5 years & is constantly engaged in courses related to construction and material studios.His core interest lies in making and detailing.
Form is an outcome of material manipulation under force. A workshop with intense hands on undertaking attempts to establish a relationship between material & form,through articulation of forces,thereby enabling development of material systems by interaction of rigid(linear- timber,bamboo, steel / planar – veneer,ply,timber,steel) & flexible materials.Using both the stiffness & flexibility present in materials,or induced using simple techniques or operations for material manipulation,we shall develop this ‘material system’ as an assembly where the interaction of matter & energies compute form,driven by complex constraints & feedbacks from making environment & human interaction.In the process,material rather than being a passive receptor of form begins to be an active generator of form.Design –build – prototype – construction helps comprehend the behaviour of materials & their interrelationship,resulting in physical fabrication. We shall get into intricacies of effective member cross sections (profile, orientation) of structural elements -look at type of joints (pin, rigid) & understand through push, pull & rotation of models- system behaviour- under vertical and lateral loads.Artisans, craftsmen & carpenter would be involved right from the conception of the design process to its culmination in built form.Therefore the course entails-(1)Understanding the concept of joinery through making. (2) Understanding material behaviour & material property in relation to form. (3) Understanding significance of geometrical forms and joinery & its behaviour under applied force as a means of load transfer. (4)Devising sequence of construction & techniques of making 1:1.Expenses for Students: Material Cost:Rs 4500/- as mentioned in expenses.
