Exploring digital fabrication with Corian
Melonie Bayl-Smith, Bijl Architecture
11.00, Wednesday 23rd September, The Forum
Melonie Bayl-Smith is Director of Sydney-based practice Bijl Architecture and Adjunct Professor at the UTS School of Architecture. With a focus on robust and collaborative contemporary design, Melonie has led her practice since 2002, producing built architectural projects across residential, interiors, commercial and public sectors. She has a distinct commitment to creating places, spaces and objects that have longevity and purpose, borne out in the number of award-winning, well received and widely published projects completed by the practice.
The De-Form Wall is a sculptural, digitally fabricated Corian installation that forms the unique centrepiece of the Naremburn House, a multi-award winning new dwelling by Bijl Architecture located in Sydney, Australia.
Covering a significant double height wall in the dramatic central stair void of the dwelling, the De-Form Wall is the result of a collaborative design project between Bijl Architecture and digital design specialists AR-MA, and is a compelling exploration of parametric drawing and scripting in built work. Innovative processes were pursued in the prototyping, design and production of the CNC-routed Corian panels, with testing and prototyping spanning the building site, design studio and workshop.
Melonie will talk about the house, the De-Form wall, and the processes and material investigations that led to this stunning outcome for the project.
