Abstract

This chapter presents a system for seamlessly integrating design, fabrication, and assembly of a geometrically complex timber veil for a house in Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea. It explains how, through the development of bespoke software tools, a designer can iteratively work in real-time and have the ability to pass model data through a comprehensive automated system, generating the output of fabrication-ready data for a highly customized project.
