The research is a deep study of material artifacts from design history, using advanced digital design and manufacturing tools, to construct bridges between design history research and contemporary creative practice.
Design Technology in Contemporary Practice
Research associated to this project reflects on how the world’s most renowned architecture practices use technology to support design and delivery of their projects.
Developing digitally manipulated and fabricated artefacts by combining documentation with speculation. Funded by: The UniSA, the SIDA Foundation and the David Roche Foundation Curatorial Research Fellowship.
Prosthetic Nests for the Powerful Owl
This project uses more-than-human and interspecies design approaches to make and test prosthetic habitat-structures for the powerful owl (Ninox strenua).
ROOM: Digital design to fabrication in temporary accommodation options for youth homelessness
Clay 3D Printing
Development of clay 3D printing techniques that provide viable fabrication options for the built environment.
Indoor Positioning Simulation
The study grounds the method for determining the dynamic and room-specific occupancy limits to improve well-being in indoor environments.
Computing and Design Thinking
Development and application of computational tools, processes and theories for automation, optimisation and machine learning in architectural design.
The research aims of this prototype is an exploration of the capacities for novel fabrication technologies to construct cultivated synthetic micro-ecologies. These synthetic substrate prototypes are intended as components within green roof or wall systems.
