Partial Architecture

16 de noviembre de 2009   | Vistas: 2 |  

Today's technology is being used in different fields, including architecture and design, to explore possibilities beyond what the human mind can conceive. In this video, Brad Bell examines how new tools and technology were used in the design process of three unique projects and describes how modernism has influenced contemporary architecture. For each of the three projects, he highlights the purpose of the project, the structural details, and the fabrication process. According to Bell, computers can provide solutions to architectural challenges and design complex structures that would be too complicated to create any other way. Finally, he emphasizes the importance of using precise software in order to accurately create and simulate structures.

Brad Bell is professor and director of the digital fabrication laboratory at the School of Architecture of University of Texas…
