Traditionally, an architect relies on geometry to generate space with material parameters typically coming much later into play. This project attempts to embed material parameters and tooling parameters from the very beginning, making fabrication a mode of design rather than a mode of representation.
The project examines normalized tooling parameters such as printing speed and printing toolpath and how these can be exploited in order to regain authorship over form. The work is rooted in a series of studies printed in PLA using a custom-built script. It later looks at how to apply customization strategies at 1:1 scale focusing on body sized modules printed in concrete.
