Archipelago from file to factory
Report, 2012

Material and Detail is a course that spans from designing a project to producing and building it. Its basis is parametric design, where a shape is changed by changing some of its variables. Being able to control a design parametrically opens possibilities of trying different solutions quickly, allowing the architect to calibrate one that fits the task precisely. The purpose of the course is to investigate new ways of producing architecture and to familiarize the students with the entire file-to-factory process. The starting point of a single material is a way of making the process more easy to focus. What are the specific characteristics for steel, what can only steel do? At the same time, the idea of taking pieces of a material and forming them into a global shape is at the basis of all craft traditions. This makes the pavilion an apt match for the courtyard of Röhsska – museum of design, arts and crafts.
