Review of AA Summer DLAB 2015 outcomes

ElifErdine: Robotic cell setup; ShawLi: Robotically milled EPS formwork; MathiasReisigl: InFlux, overall view diagram01: FEA analysis and resulting force-flow lines generated in Karamba; diagram02: Custom tool developed in Processing, mesh relaxation according to local data; diagram03: Algorithmic generation of form-work data for concrete casting

InFlux is the final working prototype of AA Summer DLAB 2015 that took place in AA’s London home and Hooke Park facilities July 27th to August 14th, 2015.

InFlux is the outcome of an exploration on the fabrication and assembly of double-curved complex geometries through the integration of generative design techniques and robotic milling strategies. In 2014 the research initiated on the material behavior of concrete. It has been developed in the 2015 cycle by further investigations linking geometry, material, and structure. Realized as a wall with 2.2 meters height, 4 meters width, and a varying depth of 3–25 cm, InFlux was developed, fabricated, and assembled in seven days.
