Fusing Design and Construction as Speculative Articulations for the Built Environment
The authors discuss an experiment, based in Sweden and using granite as the choice of material, relying on multiple computational processes that guide a physical construction. The authors suggest linking physical environments, based on their optical properties, to digital processing capabilities with the purpose of fusing design with construction. They exemplify how to achieve this by implementing a framework that supports the construction of dry stone walls on site in real time. The construction process requires natural stones of any size, a mobile display, a depth sensor, and a computing device.
