  • Artesanía en Latinoamérica: Experiencias en el contexto de la Fabricación Digital

    Herrera Polo, Pablo C.; (Editora Edgard Blucher Ltda, 2016-11)
    In moments when the artisanship tradition seems to disappear because of industrial production, we analyze cases where digital fabrication and visual programming were used in Latin American craft, encouraged by architects with skills in digital tools. The situations confront artisans with access to digital platforms and internet, use of learned skills, and the need to modify the technological level in their products and processes. Regional initiatives, which could change contemporary design history in the region with the establishing of a trans-disciplinary systematized synergy, show that traditional materials are used and unique components maintain their originality, from a region that attempts to enter into new global markets.
  • Migratory Movements of Homo Faber: Mapping Fab Labs in Latin America

    Sperling, David M.; Herrera Polo, Pablo C.; Scheeren, Rodrigo (Springer International Publishing, 2015-07-08)
    The present paper is a mapping study of digital fabrication laboratories in Latin America. It presents and discusses results from a survey with 31 universities’ fab labs, studios and independent initiatives in Latin America. The objective of this study is fourfold: firstly, to draw the cultural, social and economic context of implementation of digital fabrication laboratories in the region; secondly, to synthesize relevant data from correlations between organizational structures, facilities and technologies, activities, types of prototypes, uses and areas of application; thirdly, to draw a network of people and institutions, recovering connections and the genealogy of these fab labs; and fourthly, to present some fab labs that are intertwined with local questions. The results obtained indicate a complex “homo faber” network of initiatives that embraces academic investigations, architectural developments, industry applications, artistic propositions and actions in social processes.
  • Solución de problemas relacionados al diseño de superficies complejas: Experiencia de programación en la educación del arquitecto

    Universidad Peruana de Ciencias Aplicadas (UPC) (SIGraDi 2007, 2007-10)
    In this paper, the author explains why architects who know how to use scripts have an advantage over the ones who just know how to manipulate a specific software. The reason behind this affirmation is that knowing how to program frees the architect from the rules and language of the interactive software. To prove his point, the author organized two workshops where students at the school of architecture learned to use Rhinoscript. The students didn’t create a new interface, but used an existing one. They adapted the program (Rhino) to a design problem they had formulated at the beginning of the workshop. Students could have also used MaxScript (3DS Max) and MelScript (Maya).
  • VBScript En La Educación Del Arquitecto: Estrategias y métodos durante y después de la implementación

    Universidad Peruana de Ciencias Aplicadas (UPC) (CCIA 2008, 2008-10)
    La implementación de Rhinoscript en facultades de arquitectura en Latinoamérica se realizó en Santiago de Chile (2006, 2007) y Lima (2008), estableciendo algunos criterios para explorar formas complejas usando la programación, con estudiantes de pregrado bajo estrategias de postgrado. Después de documentar los resultados de las dos primeras experiencias [1], se hallaron métodos que se usaron durante la implementación. El objetivo es evidenciar como las experiencias llevadas a cabo pueden aplicarse a otros contextos regionales, proponiendo tipologías para empezar y recursos disponibles que permitan a los estudiantes desarrollar por si mismos nuevas exploraciones.
  • Fabrication Laboratories: Problems and possibilities of implementation in Latin America.

    Universidad Peruana de Ciencias Aplicadas (UPC) (Fab 9 Research Stream, 2013-07)
    Since 2007, Latin America has incorporated a set of emerging techniques promoted under three initiatives: a) from the experience of Master and Doctoral students who return to their home countries and promote their experience, b) from the external academic experience that goes towards the region, and c) from self-learning. These experiences are developed in an academic area, unlike Europe or the U.S., where they were promoted from and to professional practice, with varying degrees of implementation and effect. Generally speaking, the academic programs of the region lack a policy of inclusion of systematized emerging technologies, and that produces a slow uptake, especially in architecture. On one hand, if educational policies are not stable, equipment investment cannot be stable, and on the other hand, the generation gap between those who promote and those who accept blends into disruption and status quo. Each implementation in the region produces adverse and complex patterns, replicating existing models and seeking alliances with institutions in developed countries. Thus, there are self-help groups, while others incorporate academic, technical and/or commercial supervisions, in principle through the Center for Bits and Atoms (MIT Fab Lab) and McNeel Associates (Rhino Fab Lab). In this research, we evidence evolution and implementation processes in Latin America of the three types of initiatives, analyzing the case study in Peru, which together open up the possibility of moving from a phase of experimentation, trial and error to another that actually promotes local innovation and inclusion.
  • Visualización y diagramas de material bibliográfico complejo

    Universidad Peruana de Ciencias Aplicadas (UPC) (SIGraDi 2010, 2010-11)
    In this paper we present a method of synthesizing data in the narrative discourse of two architecture publications, in order to analyze, compare and explore to what extent it is possible to understand a book on different abstract levels using static data. The information in the book is reorganized and shown in different diagrams, used as a didactic visualization method. This allows the representation of a set of kinetic information that cannot be perceived simultaneously.
  • Perspectivas en los Laboratorios de Fabricación Digital en Latinoamérica

    Universidad Peruana de Ciencias Aplicadas (UPC) (SIGraDi 2012, 2012-11)
    Latin American experiences are analyzed in order to identify adverse factors, describing the complexity of the implementation of a Fabrication Laboratory in the region. As a starting point we take the implementation done by groups of academics coming back to their origin countries, and others that after the implementation they were born or adapted to an academic supervision (Fab Lab MIT) or a technical and commercial one (Rhino FabLab). In the whole, the results allow to identify opportunities for the future.
  • Reutilizando códigos como mecanismo de información y conocimiento: Programación en arquitectura

    Universidad Peruana de Ciencias Aplicadas (UPC) (SIGraDi 2012, 2012-11)
    Differently from other regions in the Planet, since 2010, in Latin America textual programming language (Rhinoscripting) is being replaced by its visual equivalent (Grasshopper). This is a consequence of our preference for an interactive platform, and because our design problems are not as complex, so we aim to control geometrical problems or aspects belonging to an product scale instead of an architectural one. Problems emerging when creating code could be improved by modifying and reusing existing solutions as a starting point, since learning would not be centered in the object but in the process of creating it, using a suitable instrument.

  • Fabricação digital na América do Sul: um mapeamento de linhas de ação a partir da arquitetura e urbanismo

    Universidad Peruana de Ciencias Aplicadas (UPC) (Blucher Design Proceedings, 2015-11)
    The article presents a mapping of digital fabrication laboratories in South America from the architecture and urbanism field. First, it draws a brief context of implementation of facilities and growing of expertise highlighting economic, academic and cultural aspects. Second, it presents some data mapped from 31 laboratories of the region, as infrastructure, and correlations between uses and applications. Third, it organizes the mapped laboratories in two significant approaches for the region’s context: works focused on technological development and actions directed to the social and environmental development. Fourth, it infers some possible steps of the field in the region in the near future.
