Expeditions in Non-Metal

Built spaces of today and the future requires more and more building products that are need and context-specific. All these encompass different perspectives of thinking in terms of material, manufacturing, standards, etc Throughout this course in the development of building products a common design process followed is : Space - People - PDS - Manufacturability - User Experience The studio with the help of tasks that builds on top of each other delves into the world of non-metals where I learned about various non-metal categories of materials, their manufacturing processes, existing building products and their applications. Using various methods to arrive at designs, 3d modelling, physical prototyping, sketching, etc while producing PDS, aesthetic refinement and technical drawings.
