1. Professor Bob Sheil's inaugural lecture titled 'Design through Production' explored the illusive and evolving relationships between drawing and making in architecture through two decades of work by sixteen*(makers) and four edited books on associated fields. The lecture took place on 3rd October at The Bartlett School of Architecture as part of The Bartlett International Lecture Series.

    Bio

    Bob Sheil is Professor in Architecture and Design through Production at The Bartlett School of Architecture UCL, where he runs MArch Unit 23 with Emmanuel Vercruysse and Kate Davies, and is Director of Technology and Computing. He is a founding partner of sixteen*(makers), whose recent work in collaboration with Stahlbogen GmbH ‘55/02’ won a RIBA award for design. He has edited two editions of Architectural Design; ‘Design through Making’ (2005), and ‘Protoarchitecture’ (2008). In 2011 he Co-Chaired the highly successful international conference FABRICATE with Ruairi Glynn. In 2012 he published ‘Manufacturing the Bespoke’ an AD Reader on prototyping and making architecture in the digital age, and ‘55/02: A sixteen*(makers) Monograph’ (Riverside Architectural Press 2012). He is presently working on a new build project, and a third AD due for publication in January 2014

  2. lecture by Phil Ayres in the frame of the digital.material seminar April 25 2010

    exhibition digital.material

    an exhibition by CITA
    dates: 23.04 - 23.05 2010
    venue: ROM Gallery - Maridalsveien 3 - 0178 Oslo - Norway

    The exhibition digital.material explores how non-standardised design practices can make new use of old materials. Developing bespoke interfaces for digital design and fabrication the exhibition investigates how digital techniques allow us to rethink the traditional boundaries between architect and builder, designer and craftsman.

    Digital media is often seen as a way to abstract the world. But in design and fabrication digital tools allow for a new closeness between design and making. As manufacturing becomes increasingly computer controlled and as better and more solid interfaces between the design space and fabrication mature, a more integrated working practice arises. To enter into this practice, and to make use of its knowledge sharing and its ability to create new more sustainable building practice that lie outside the mass produced and the standardised, it is necessary to integrate this new practice into architectural thinking, designing and making.

    digital.material explores a new material nearness into our practice. Through this exhibition we ask: how do we engage with this material sense, how can better crafts knowledge challenge our design paradigms and what happens when the architect become tool builder defining individualised design tools for non standardised making.

  3. The shelter 55/02 by Sixteen*Makers is set in the forest on the north shore of Keilder Water, Northumberland. A product of a collaboration, between architects Sixteen*(Makers) and steel fabricators Stahlbogen. It was completed in 2009, and in 2010 we documented the finished structure with a series of full colour 3D scans. These scans created a 3D model which we used to create this animation. The scan data was also used to test the actual built product against the idealised digital models which were used to create the building.

    As a result of the intimate relationship between the designers and makers, 55/02 was designed through making, and developed as a series of tactile tests and digital representations rather than a predetermined set of design drawings. In this instance therefore, the scans represent the final set of 'as built' drawings. In May 2011, 55/02 won an RIBA award for design excellence.

    We'd love to use scanning to document more works of contemporary architecture - especially when their remote location means few people get to see them. Get in touch if you've a project you think could be appropriate. studio@scanlabprojects.co.uk

  5. Bob Sheil lectures in the frame of the Confluence Symposium - Establishing data flow from Design to Site
    Friday 23. November 2012 (11.00 – 17.00)
    KADK- Auditorium 6, Danneskiold-Samsøes Allé 53, 1434 Copenhagen

    Symposium Agenda:
    Building Information Modelling came with the promise to create a fluent building process starting in design and reaching out all along to architectural production and use. Looking at research driven developments in both academia and practice the seminar investigates the contemporary state, challenges and future potential that might emerge from an unlimited flow of information. Here it is research that emphasises the role of fabrication and material while practice develops seemingly approaches that engage directly with contractors and building site. The research seminar confluence highlights the emerging tools and processes and discusses directions for further development.
    National and international guest lecturers will highlight successful strategies, pitfalls and future challenges through research induced projects that bridge BIM based planning with the digital fabrication in building construction. The seminar crossexamines projects in the full range of scales and aims to establish a platform to share experiences and move the contemporary boundaries of the use of BIM.
    The symposium 2 is organised by Martin Tamke and Morten Myrup Jensen and is part of the Institute 4 - BIM symposium series.
