Tectonic Grounds is a course at the University of Melbourne exploring digital fabrication techniques, physical computing and rapid (laser-cut) 1:1 prototyping to deliver a 1:1 folly.
The subject has an emphasis on hands-on exploration of spatial and creative processes will challenge the role of drawing, making and constructing skills within today’s technology, defining contemporary standards of craftsmanship. The subject also investigates the application of interaction design to create a unique and personalised experience of the space.
Tectonic Grounds is based on collaboration and teamwork, focusing on creating an interdisciplinary approach to utilise computing tools (digital + physical) for architectural design.
2016’s installation, Kabuto, is a domed shell which uses a webcam to react to light, and is constructed completely out of polypropelene.
