Increasing automation in construction is favoring individual, repetitive parts and modularity. Developing capacities for emergent spatial qualities on the level of the part could help broaden the scope of formal heterogeneity within automated construction processes.
The Protocols of Modulation studio is looking at ways of introducing humanscale articulation in construction by developing protocols of modulation. With this kickoff workshop the visiting tutors are asked to combine material qualities and available production methods to come up with quasiautomated models of modular assemblies. Each student will produce, in the end, a diffused cube measuring 30x30x30 cm, that is derived from an analysis of the assigned project of Estonian 20th century housing. The cubes will be presented within the permanent exhibition of the museum until the end of Tallinn Architecture Biennale 2019.
