Bridging the Gaps Computation to Construction in India

Bridging the Gaps Computation to Construction in India

Sheth, Urvi;

Article:

In the era of The Second Digital Turn, designers and engineers have easy andequal access to computational tools across the globe. With the highestdevelopment of technology at a global level, design development to constructionprocess is locally contextualised in different parts of the world based on theavailable technology and resources. The paper presents a craft-based approachto computation and its contribution to support artisans' development in India. Itis demonstrated through ongoing research on customising bricks and utilizationof computationally generated asymmetrical Catalan vault. The challenge ofconstructing the computationally generated form by architecture students iscompleted by the craftsmen and students of crafts school. The research elucidatesgaps at various levels. Craft based solutions bridging these gaps establish amethodology which makes complex geometry constructible in present-day Indiawhen access to digital fabrication methods are still evolving and expensive.
