“Imagine if you can download, print, and assemble your own needs and necessities during the CoVid-19 lock-down period.”
Set in the CoVid-19 crisis, this unit investigated how digitally fabricated making process and modular design components can give apt solutions for offsite production processes in a controlled environment, with simple low-cost installation, creating a flexible open-ended interior layout to suffice all possible needs during the lock down period. The students developed a set of modular parts, in relation to a specific digital fabrication technology. These parts were defined as an open-ended, universal and versatile constructional component, with a digital connectivity logic. This discrete method advanced as a theoretical argument about the nature of digital fabrication process and how it could also help the end users become the makers themselves. Parametric design thinking collated the fundamental base to this digitally fabricated design, to propagate it for a definite function for a pre-defined context; allowing the final design to act as a subversive solution in the current CoVid-19 crisis.
