Greg Lynn You’ll See It When You Know It

April 8, 2008 |
Introduction by:

Greg Lynn based the title of this lecture You’ll see it when you know it on a quote by U.S. Supreme Court Justice Potter Stewart regarding pornography. A self-described contrarian, Lynn explains his approach to design through a series of projects, which correlate to his design vocabulary of architecture, technology, audience, taste, and sensibility. From Alessi flatware to the Slavin House, Lynn shows how he finds what he’s looking for when he knows what he wants to see.

Davolio first outlines a Eric Owen Moss glass canopy project which he worked on while at Advanced Structures. He then describes his role in the Beijing airport project with Foster. Both these projects are so complex that parametric tools are needed to determine the shapes of the elements, both the facade and the supporting structure.

Davolio describes a couple of projects he has worked on as an independent consultant. In a project for a Louvre extension, he helped the manufacturer rationalize the skin geometry for production. On a large canopy project for Hong Kong, he was heavily involved in producing the desired aesthetic outcome from the skin system, including contributing to the structural design.

Roberto Davolio describes the breadth and scope of the facade modelling work that he does. The first project by Eric Owen Moss requires novel glass working techniques, while the Beijing airport by Foster is enormous in scale. He then demonstrates the relationship and workflow between the structural system, and the panelization system on two more typical projects. Parametric tools are necessary because of the schedules on most Asian projects, and the need to feed information to a whole range of project participants.

Davolio gives some examples of the Maya tools in practice. He uses extensive scripting to make various software he uses fully parametric. The aim is to quickly evaluate multiple variations, structurally and aesthetically. The projects can vary from very large complexes, to towers, to small restaurant projects. In Asia technical consultants are brought in soon after the schematic design phase.
