This plywood cladding project explores the tension between material fabrication and parametric control. Student Dan Hesketh performed experiments to discover latent properties of plywood, which were then used to drive the design. The introduction of parametric modelling complicated the effort, however, raising issues of Digital Exchange. On one hand, parametric control empowered the student to explore a wider range of geometries. On the other hand, by doing so, awareness of materiality was curtailed.
