Winter School 2013 – Digital Crafts : Generative Design
Digital Crafts: Emerging Forms (2013WS)
Digital Crafts is twenty days intense research workshop at CEPT University, Ahmedabad, conducted by SWS. It aimed at introducing the vision, tools and techniques of mass customization and complex geometry through computational design. Students learn basics of scripting for complex geometry. They generated a dynamic model which allowed several iterations before finalizing design. It also included logic of production. Fabrication and assembly/construction involved digital as well as crafting techniques. The course was an opportunity to experience design to production using various medias in short time. Deliverables of the course is to produce a live size installation and scale prototypes.
