This study examines the feasibility of employing space-filling solids in architectural-scale designs and explores the application of digital design methods in digital architecture. Specifically, the comparison and analysis focus on two nature-inspired space-filling solids, namely cubes and truncated octahedrons. The truncated octahedron exhibits favorable flexibility and adaptability when combined with modular design principles. Digital architecture relies on the advancement of digital tools, encompassing digital software and digital machines. Notably, 3D printing possesses exceptional shaping capabilities, offering expanded possibilities for constructing digital architecture.
To investigate digital architectural processes, two experimental case studies are conducted. The first case study involves the design of the 'Flowing apartment,' which employs deformed cubes generated through laser cutting and 3D printing techniques. The second case study features the 'Nomad POD,' designed utilizing deformed truncated octahedrons and 3D printing technology. By utilizing digital design and processing methods, this research contributes to the understanding of digital architectural practices and their connection to digital manufacturing. The integration of space-filling solids, digital design, and 3D printing enables innovative approaches to architectural design and construction. This paper provides insights into the potential applications and benefits of utilizing space-filling solids at an architectural scale, highlighting their role in fostering modularity and facilitating the realization of intricate architectural designs.
