“Informed Form” is an ongoing research initiative that explores the relevance of form as a product of reciprocity between geometry (form), force (performance), matter (organization), and craft (fabrication). It extends the design research legacies of analogue form finding in the works of Otto, Gaudi, Isler, and Candela by exploring digital and analogue techniques for discovering form through variable material and geometric organizations and force simulations, while simultaneously considering the design opportunities being afforded by advances in computation and fabrication technologies.
