"Exoskeleton" is a pavilion that shows how Computer Aided Manufacturing can create rapid prototypes. This manufacturing process allows for real-scale construction and experimentation with limited resources. In this project, a system of modules, designed with different dimensions, is put together with simple joints without nails or screws. This allows for different surfaces to be formed and for the pieces to be rotated and assembled at various angles and heights.

From the architects. Our master dissertation investigated a ?bottom-up? approach to structural design by means of prototyping, a subcategory of digital fabrication. The design of a small pavilion, the Exoskeleton, served as a test case.

This ?bottom-up? approach allowed for working in an empirical way; new ideas were validated through immediate physical testing of their constructional behavior. In this way the total design of the pavilion did not arise from an overarching 3D-model, deriving components from the overall shape, but instead from an iterative design process, whereby first the components and only then the overall shape were determined through prototyping.

Applying this bottom-up approach to structural design enabled a detachment from well-defined structural typologies. Since knowledge was gradually built up during the design process, this approach enabled to investigate innovative structural principles or a new application of a certain material. A hands-on understanding of the structural behaviour of a certain construction was developed during the design process.

Computer Aided Manufacturing was instrumental to this approach, as it allows for rapid fabrication of numerous prototypes. This rapid prototyping method enabled us to quickly test and learn. Making the design process affordable, was only possible if the materials used for the physical models were cheap and the fabrication techniques were fast. Hence limitations concerning budget and availability of fabrication techniques were taken into account from the start of the design process.

Thin plywood panels are chosen as material and 2D CNC-techniques (laser-cutting and milling) as form process. An investigation into the characteristics and physical behavior of the material was determining for the design since this bottom-up design process starts from the possibilities that lie within the material itself. Departing from th...
