digital fabrication workshop of hinge method paneling will work on creating the 3d objects of flat materials, and its focus is mainly on paneling. “Hinge” is the name of a technique that enables flat materials to exit from 2d forms, by Weakening the materials in particular points.
This workshop will try to guide students in the path of design and fabricate the facade panels and internal space partitions by materials such as plywood and composite panels and by using hinge technique and parametric design.
The workshop will have different parts that begin with describing the digital design process and then students will experience hinge design by test materials like cardboard. at the next stage, every group will experience fabricating the construction units with more architectural materials like plywood.
This workshop will be held at Tehran University.
