Weaving physical-digital networks: Brazil-Germany integration experience

Wallisser, Tobias; Henriques, Gonçalo Castro; Ribeiro, Amanda; Menna, Ronaldo Lee;

Article:

The idea of a network weaved this project in a conceptual as well as in a physicalway. A network in the sense of an intangible connection between people, and anetwork in the sense of a materiality, woven to constitute the skin of a buildingaccording to different techniques associated with the ancient culture of coveringto provide shelter. We seek to integrate old cultural identities with new digitalmethods. In the time of the fourth industrial revolution, we might think about anetwork as something fully accomplished, as if the availability of an internetconnection was synonymous with effective communication. In our methodology,we face network challenges at the intersection of human communication and thephysical and material domains. The challenge is to discover what to exchangeand how to do so. Through the Brazilian-German program `Connect', we testedour research in two practical workshops in two continents. The result suggeststhat is possible to weave a network incorporating local building traditions andanalogue and digital processes of form-finding. The report describes our findingsand shares critical reflections opening future research possibilities.
