Reestablishing a sense of place
Concrete 3D printing with robotic arm application
The subject of this thesis is related to the investigation of possibilities that can be found with the development of 3D printing system that uses concrete mixes as material and adapted to a FANUC M-710i C/50 robotic arm. ...
Mass fabrication of non-standard geometries
Rapid evolution of technologies has driven revolutionary changes in architecture allowing architects to go beyond formerly impossible. Today's common practice involves designing and building of complex-shaped geometries ...
An exploration of stereotomic form-finding strategies utilizing 3D printing and robotic hot wire cutting
The limits of design can now be exponentially explored due to various software and technology available. Specifically applied to stereotomic design, the goal was to explore form-finding strategies utilizing 3D printing and ...
Intensity morphology in landscape urbanism digitally designed projection of a historic urban condition through the lens of contemporary urban theories
Are contemporary urban models successful in predicting the future of urban conditions? How can one design an experiment geared towards answering this question? What parameters are decisive when trying to figure out the ...
Water Harvesting: Simulating Rainwater Harvesting for Building Envelope Design
The foundation of this research is to provide awareness to the global issue of freshwater scarcity and how architecture, along with digital design, may assist in confronting the issue. Adaptations for desert environments ...
The adaptation of vernacular design strategies for contemporary building design in Kurdistan
ABSTRACT The contemporary architecture in Kurdistan’s cities is characterized by a low climatic and social performance. The contemporary architecture’s aesthetic does not have continuity, because it suffers from diverse ...
South Plains Army air field: History and documentation
This study identifies the importance of the South Plains Army Air Field as well as documenting the largest existing hangar. Importance of the army air field can be achieved using historical documents and military records. ...
Automated dispensing cabinets: A usability study using virtual reality simulation
Automated Dispensing Cabinets (ADC) are increasingly becoming essential technology in hospitals. Currently, the available research on ADCs is primarily in two areas. One area is in the design and specifications of ADCs, ...
Alive by material: A study of dielectric polymer as a material with intrinsic kinetic properties for architectural application
Architecture is often described as the ‘Frozen Music’. With the advancement of machines and robotics this idea is continually changing. From 1970 onwards, many architects, engineers, and futurists have suggested that, to ...
