Computational Media_Tall Towers

Technicart’ award winning research project (RAIA 2009_Partridge Partners) was undertaken with Peter Ung at UTS under the guidance of Anthony Burke and Ben Hewitt in 2008. The project class was titled Computational Media and it specifically looked at Tall tower typologies with an emphasis on exploring new structural possibilities.

Our project examined the use of computational media in creating a structure which reacted to a specified set of variables. We set up controls to affect the density and weave of the structure to accommodate program, egress, views, spatial types and sun access.

The structural results of these deformations were assessed for both their programmatic and spatial values and then using Multiframe FEA software its structural soundness.

The results displayed below are a frozen representation of this rig, open to interpretation and further interrogation. The results were often unexpected and surprising.

The project demonstrates Technicart’s expertise in design, parametric modeling, 3d rendering and rapid prototyping in exploring contemporary architectural design solutions.
