Parabrick was a 5 day intense workshop to design and construct a parametric brick wall. In the workshop, the students learnt to generate parametric models, to utilize rapid prototyping tools and to combine digital fabrication strategies with traditional construction methods. We also worked on a materialization strategy to build the parametric brick constructions in full-scale using actual bricks and mortar. Visit the website:
