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.
