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

      Herrera Polo, Pablo C.; pablo@espaciosdigitales.org (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.

    • 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.

    • 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.

    • 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.

    • Ornament as a need in spontaneous architecture. Learning aesthetics from self-constructed dwellings.

      Universidad Peruana de Ciencias Aplicadas (UPC) (Universidad Peruana de Ciencias Aplicadas (UPC), 2015-02-16)
      Ornament or decorative elements are a constant in spontaneous architecture. When people build their own dwelling without consulting a professional, it will always display some kind of sign or symbol aimi ng to make the house “beautiful”. Even if there is rarely a consensus on what beautiful means, the preferences of the inhabitants are shown through a set of el ements in the architec ture of their house. Precarious spontaneous housi ng i n the peripheries of Lima (Peru) shows us how the search for beauty occupies a fundamental place in peopl es’ priorities, emerging even before the most basic comforts that people expects to have in their houses.

    • Patrones en la Enseñanza de la Programación en Arquitectura: De la Hetero-­‐ Educación a la Auto-­‐Educación en Latinoamérica

      Universidad Peruana de Ciencias Aplicadas (UPC) (Universidad Técnica Federico Santa María (Chile), 2015-02-25)
      Teaching programming to architects, in academic and professional contexts, occurs in Latin America through self-­‐management, and focused on results, without analyzing the processes and establishing a follow-­‐up to participants, to establish patterns of application. The pointing out of these problems and the proposal of how to make said education sustainable has allowed finding variables specific to the region and to the very same tools and instruments, which are constantly evolving. At the same time, it is proposed after the analysis, that hetero-­‐education (shared learning) itself requires self-­‐education (self-­‐teaching processes) as a complementary process.

      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.
