Digital Design & Fabrication Program
developed by students at the Digital Design and Fabrication Program (DDF), at the College of Architecture, Texas Tech University
By investigating computational geometry, material systems and fabrication processes, students together with faculty develop building components, products and interactive responsive environments. Students obtain a Master of Science in Architecture Specialization or a Graduate Certificate in Digital Design and Fabrication. (http://arch.ttu.edu/wiki/Ddf)
In capturing the particular quality of sunsets and sunrises as found in Lubbock as digital inspiration, a three-dimensional field is changing its form and color and becomes a urban seating furniture. Through the study of light and its properties of refraction, computational light rays are programmed to reflect the various colors and angles, which determine various heights and color gradients of the seating installation.
