Existing methods for the production and installation of free-form ceiling structures were not suitable with respect to construction cost and time period that were assigned to a Shinsa-town project. Hence, we selected the Robotic-based Digital Fabrication Method that was being tested at that time. Considering the construction cost and period, we selected expandable polystyrene (EPS) as the material of the ceiling structure, and we developed and utilized BAT (a Grasshopper plug-in), to process… CONTINUE READING
