Antoni Gaudi had developed columns that transcended their structural purpose and became the manifestation and his ideals in each of his projects. Idea is to learn the complexity of these columns which are called Bifurcating columns inspired by branching of trees. Famous example is the one in Sagrada Famillia, Barcelona. We would like to learn these complex geometry of columns through digital media (grasshopper) , how to make these and iterate their profiles.
Students would be first learn the same digitally and then will be making it physically. They have to make 5m long Column profile with customised designed base profiles. These columns with twisting profiles can be achieved only through digital programming. Using POP and fabricated profiles through CNC columns will be made in studio.
Expenses for Students :- Materials -Rs. 1000/-
