TrapiXe: o local como parâmetro

Tramontano, Marcelo; Perdigão, Ana Kláudia; Nojimoto, Cynthia;


From the experience of the workshop TrapiXe, this article focuses on three aspects of the design of architectural objects with complex geometric shapes, making use of parametric computational programs. The first two relate 1. the establishment of relations between the architectural object and aspects of local culture; and 2 the use of information extracted from the area of intervention itself, transformed into parameters to be inserted in computer programming. The third aspect is the possibility of serial reproduction of non-identical building components, relating parametric design with digital fabrication procedures aiming at the construction of buildings composing a public equipments network at different locations in the same city.
