133: Wikihouse: a parametric approach to generate different spatial arrangements
Original title: Wikihouse: uma abordagem parametrica para a geração de diferentes arranjos espaciais

Research in PORTUGUÊS

Wikihouse is an open-source, modular, digitally fabricated building system. Despite being the object of many studies in different countries, most of these experiences present a sequence of frames that generate only linear forms without formal variations. In this sense, this study aims to develop a geometry that allows more variations through the repetition of the same module. For this purpose, the research uses visual algorithmic modeling in Grasshopper to generate the geometry. As a result, we inserted the frames into a trapezium and mirrored the main profile, which kept the number of pieces. In future research, we intend to optimize the number of parts, reduce the cost and production time, and build a 1:1 module for validating its constructive stability.
