Spring 2019 – I designed and taught a design seminar named, “Computational Craft: Inquiry, Theory, and Applications” at Georgia Tech. In this design seminar we considered the notion of computation broadly to include computing done by machine as well as computing done by hand. The craft explored this semester was wire-bending. I was fortunate to have great students with inquisitive minds, who were interested in computation and willing to work towards creating compelling artifacts and architecture. The main project for the semester was the design and fabrication of a pavilion built on wire-bending principles.
For the syllabus, photos of artifacts produced in the seminar, and the pavilion, you can refer to the official website.
