The Importance of Clean Design Models Early in the Design Process…

Recently, I was asked why someone like me, who is more interested in advanced 3D modeling, parametric design, scripting, digital fabrication and 3D printing, would be interested in the DD, CD and CA phases of the architectural design process. I ended up writing a rather long letter to this person and I would like to share some of those thoughts here: My passion is for the built environment—to build things at a human scale that last and change the lives of those who interact with them every day. My long term career goal is to implement technology in a greater … Continue reading The Importance of Clean Design Models Early in the Design Process…

The Inevitabilities of Ornamentation A Re-instantiation of Architectural Ornamentation through Digital Production and Fabrication [Paper]

  The Inevitabilities of Ornamentation A Re-instantiation of Architectural Ornamentation through Digital Production and Fabrication Jeremy Luebker Tools and Trade: Instrumentality + Architecture The University of Michigan _ Arch 701  Winter 2013 _ Amy Kulper Introduction The architectural debate of ornamentation has resurfaced with the current development in parametric modeling, computational design and digital fabrication. Adolf Loos, stated in his work Ornament and Crime, “ornament represents wasted labor and ruined material”. Until the past decade or so, this was indeed the case. However, with the implementation of computerized modeling and parametrics the interest in complicated and unique constructions has been … Continue reading The Inevitabilities of Ornamentation A Re-instantiation of Architectural Ornamentation through Digital Production and Fabrication [Paper]

An Architectural Revolution: Digial Production and Fabrication

An Architectural Revolution Rigital Production and Fabrication   By Jeremy Luebker MS Proseminar University of Michigan Milton S. F. Curry October, 18th 2012 “Architecture or revolution. Revolution can be avoided.” – Le Corbusier The production and fabrication of architecture has been a concept of particular interest, especially in the last six or seven decades in the United States. One might ask, “Isn’t architecture inherently about the making of things? So what is the significance of the interest in production? Isn’t production, just another means of construction?” Granted architecture is at its core about the making of things, whether physical or … Continue reading An Architectural Revolution: Digial Production and Fabrication
