基于单元砖体均匀分布的材料特性改变砖体之间的连接方式及空间发展方向,突破了长久以来其由本身的形态刚性及结构受压特性所产生的空间结构极限。本项目通过砖体的形式文法生形以及墙体的结构性能优化,并通过遗传算法对产生结果进行优化筛选,使得砖这种古老材料在其本元意象的和传统做法中寻找结构性能上的更多可能性。机械臂的空间精准定位使得这种预设走向实际建造,由于空间和条件的局限而选定的分段搭建,在多段墙体连接后能够形成一段稳定连续而有具有强烈视觉冲击力的砖墙序列。与此同时机械臂工作站的综合性流水线工作模式,将设计师的性能优化设计与建造施工完美整合,完成基于结构性能的砖构。


Based on the structural homogeneity of masonry structure, by changing the connection mode and spatial paradigm, we break through the construction limit set by its structural performance.

Generated by shape grammar, adjusted with structure performance analysis, optimized by Genetic Algorithm, and supported by the accurate spatial positioning of robot arm, the project attempts to improve the aesthetic and application value of brick within its original image and building routine.

According to the hardware facilities, we establish a subsection building strategy.

After being put together, these fragment constitute a serial brick installation with subtle visual impact.

Accompanied by the KUKA work station, the full-automated building procedure can coordinate the design scheme, the structure optimization, and the building process to realize the ideal brick tectonic.
