Non-Linear Parametric Workshop 11 – “Scale Fail: Pavilion to Product”

Courtesy of

This was an unprecedented year for Tsinghua University’s Non-Linear Parametric Workshop with close to 200 students attending.  Students of the Advanced Design Unit taught by Daniel Gillen, with assistance by Andrew Haas investigated parametric software, thought processes and strategy with a specific focus on versioning.

The tutors’ sequenced information provided to students to encourage a scientific level of variable testing and analysis.  The nine-day workshop was organized into three parts, beginning with abstract versioning, followed by a pavilion, and concluding with a product.
