Digitally​ ​Manufactured​ ​Concrete​ ​Formwork:​ ​A​ ​Case​ ​Study​ ​at​ ​The​ ​Cleveland​ ​Museum​

Through​ ​the​ ​lens​ ​of​ ​a​ ​specific​ ​project,​ ​the​ ​presentation​ ​will​ ​explore​ ​the​ ​possibilities​ ​of​ ​digital​ ​fabrication​ ​of concrete​ ​formwork,​ ​the​ ​associated​ ​design​ ​and​ documentation​ ​process,​ ​and​ ​the​ ​lessons​ ​learned​ ​from​ ​the construction​ ​process.

The​ ​presentation​ ​will​ ​use​ ​a​ ​case​ ​study​ ​to​ ​illustrate​ ​the​ ​complete​ ​process.​ ​At​ ​the​ ​Cleveland​ ​Museum​ ​of​ ​Art, the​ ​Maintenance​ ​Building​ ​(construction​ ​was​ ​completed​ in​ ​the​ ​Fall​ ​of​ ​2016)​ ​forms​ ​a​ ​visual​ ​buffer​ ​from​ ​the sculpture​ ​garden​ ​and​ ​restaurant​ ​and​ ​the​ ​service​ ​loading​ ​docks.​ Beginning​ ​with​ ​an​ ​introduction​ ​of​ ​concepts​ ​and​ capabilities,​ ​the​ ​case​ ​study​ ​will​ ​focus​ ​on​ ​the​ ​applications of​ ​custom​ ​concrete​ ​formwork​ ​fabricated​ ​using​ ​CNC​ ​technology.​ ​The​ ​course​ ​will​ ​cover​ ​the​ ​creation​ ​of design​ ​processes​ ​and​ ​efficient​ ​documentation​ ​procedures​ ​to​ ​facilitate​ ​the​ ​integration​ ​of​ ​digitally manufactured​ ​formwork​ ​into​ ​your​ ​projects.​ ​You​ ​will​ ​also​ ​learn​ ​to​ write​ ​effective​ ​specifications,​ ​about typical​ ​construction​ ​administration​ ​issues​ ​that​ ​may​ ​arise,​ ​and​ ​how​ ​to​ ​manage​ ​those​ ​issues​ ​in​ ​the​ ​field.

Chris​ ​Hardy​, ​Associate​ ​at​ ​Sasaki​​ ​in​ ​Watertown, Massachusetts will lead the presentation.​ ​Chris​ ​is​ ​a​ ​Coordinator​ ​of​ ​Sasaki's​ ​Fabrication​ ​Studio​ ​and​ ​focuses​ ​on​ integrating modern​ ​craft​ ​within​ ​the​ ​firm’s​ ​work.​

For those who qualify, 1.5 LUs are available.
