Abstract [en]

“File-to-factory” processes of computer technologies is a contemporary way to both maximise efficiency throughout the building process, increase a building's performance, and be able to add interesting architectural possibilities throughout the design phase. Viewing the building as a parametric network of connected components that can be individually controlled through unique parameters may no longer be a novel architectural concept, but its application to multi-storey timber buildings is still a territory for which there are no maps. Allowing not only the notion of identicality in mechanically reproduced objects to be left behind, but replacing the idea of the object with that of the objectile, the authors investigate a novel approach that produces a set of building trajectories rather than a set of buildings, yet yields a series of buildable examples of those trajectories. This paper describes and evaluates how this series of stacked multi-storey timber buildings based on three Swedish timber structural systems can be both incorporated within a file-to-factory process, and how this gives rise to a range of new and interesting potentials to create innovative solutions throughout the entire design and manufacturing process
