Intro: AN ON-SITE TECHNIQUE FOR PARAMETRIC BRICK WALLS WITH ROTATING BRICKS//ßtudiomm16
Budget: Brick + Laser Cutting + Brick work: 10-25 k
The project includes a digital brick laying technique. The final prototype is a facade in Damavand,Iran. It is an independent research and parts of it come from my MArch Thesis University of Buufalo NY-TMU of Tehran.
the project is called : "NEGATIVE PRECISION.ON-SITE FABRICATION OF A PARAMETRIC BRICK FACADE//A DIY FOR ARCHITECTS". The project is about an on-site technique for parametric brick walls. It starts by studying precedents including Zurich's ETH Robot-brick constructions, GSD's brick-walls,SHoP's Facade in mulberry,NY and a project by Archi Union Office, and looks for an on-site method.
It also has one big picture (the big picture - also attached) that explains the whole process in a form of a DIY. My thesis is about precision fetishism and at some point of it professional DIYs as a way of thinking about open-source architecture are discussed.
And the stencils for different patterns are available on my website as a product.
