Material System Workshop:
During the workshop we are going to test different materials and construction systems that we are going to use during the Summer School.
Freestanding surface trial
In this experiment we tried to create a surface which can stand vertically and carry its own weight. Scaling up with the same hoses (polyethylene tube (gapex) 10/12 mm) created problems with the stiffness of the surface. We also experience bucking problems in the peak points (midpoints of the hose).
Since we need and input-output system for the algae to grown we also adjusted the weaving pattern
Tests with polyethylene tube (gapex) 10/12 mm
We made several experiments and created a small surface with polyethylene tubes. Each element consists of two hoses weaved to each other.
Algae growth experiments
The second system we are going to introduce is a bioreactor system for algae to grow inside he pipes.
We started making diagrams of the possible movements, different patters etc.
Introducing a movable component to the woven hose system
the investigation of a controlled movement through a wooden system with joints
Weaving hoses and movement
Here is the experimentation
Hydroponic system testing
Testing the hoses
Checking the curvature of plastic hoses
In line with the preparatory events for Summer School, Nilüfer Kozikoğlu, Burcu Biçer, Gamze Gunduz and Menelaos Kokkinos visited Delft.
They visited Prof. Oosterhuis office in Rotterdam.
J. Jaskiewicz and his team organised a tutoring session with Hyperbody students and an introduction on how to work hands-on with HiveKit.

During the workshop Gamze Gunduz, Deniz Tumerdem and Metin Sahin will introduce the main principles around design by data.
The workshop will be divided in 3 sessions
In the first session Metin Sahin will run a tutorial on how to install and edit excel data and how to make surfaces.
Second session is about embedding environmental data onto selected surface. Analyses in Ecotect with weather file and then the information will be imported in Grasshopper through Geco. With the use of Galapagos, it will be possible to work on a responsive surface that will react to real time data changes.
Finally, several optimized surfaces will be produced for different times of the year. The purpose of the session is to further understand the relation between data and geometry and the notion of a responsive surface.
Third session is about Digital Fabrication, ie. the advanced digital design methods and fabrication processes in an integrated way to make physical things from virtual data. This session will focus on transition between computer modeling and materialization. The responsive surfaces designed in the previous sessions will we fabricated. The goal is to translate the language of design into one of the digital fabrication methods: CNC Laser Cut, CNC Milling and 3D Printing. A family of surfaces will be fabricated while understanding the different processes; CAD (Computer-Aided Design) geometry , CAM (Computer-Aided Manufacturing), Material Preparation and Machining Process.
The workshop will take place on 22-23 of July in Taşkışla. If you want to join us sent a mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Note: Replicator2 Makerbot is now at ITU.
In this section you will find interviews from the instructors during the Summer School in Istanbul. New videos will be added soon.
