Code to Production

As part of the build up to the RoblArch 2016 conference, BVN were invited to take part as industry representatives in a research elective at The University of Sydney (USYD) called ‘Code to Production’. Code to Production explored the potential of an iterative design process from parametric variations; to analysis and simulation; to digital prototyping and manufacturing. The course had a two-fold agenda: to examine the performance of complex geometries available through sophisticated computational design processes, and to translate the optimised design by digital manufacturing into robotic experimentation and prototyping.

Based upon the development of a series of controlled variations derived through parametric and scripting methods, the elective aimed to further expand an understanding of geometry and architectural performance between informed by robots, materials and sensors. It reviewed an open system of design research in which design process, computational…
