In this assignment students are required to remodel the interior of an existing apartment through the design of one piece of superfurniture, containing the required programme as well as organizing the entire space into different functional areas.
The exercise introduces the parametric modeling tool Grasshopper and basic concepts of rapid prototyping (through the use of laser cutters and 3D printers). It also involves the design of 1:1 fabrication details. This way, the exercise covers the entire non-linear design workflow from preliminary sketch to (digital) fabrication planning.
