We are a group of computational design enthusiasts that meet once a month for pizza, beer and inspirational ideas. The objective is to bring together anyone who is curious or passionate about computational design to share ideas, workflows, research or projects.
If you’d like to talk about your project, have a set of tips, or a latest paper (even if its not yours – obviously with credit given) during one of the next meetups, our hosts would love to hear from you!
There are significant opportunities within the current timber supply chain to utilise our natural timber resource in a more efficient, and valuable, way. Researchers from the University of Queensland and ARC Future Timber Hub will present new computational design approaches for resource-adaptive timber construction, and designer-led development of resource-efficient building products and systems.
• Harry Mills - Resource-responsive design strategies for under-utilised timber
• Caitlin Reid- Lamination heuristics for utility-grade nail-laminated timber
• Dan Luo - AI defect identification for timber resource recovery
Presentations will start at 5pm and via Zoom Webinar. Please register here to receive the webinar link:
• Harry Mills is a PhD candidate at the University of Queensland (UQ). His research focuses on developing tools to support built environment uptake of alternate and non-structural timber resources.
• Caitlin Reid is a UQ Civil Engineering graduate, who developed computational tools for timber design as part of her final year thesis.
• Dan Luo is a Lecturer at UQ, with a dual appointment in Civil Engineering and Architecture. She has a strong computer science background, having completed a PhD in digital design and robotic fabrication from Tsinghua University.
