**Bifuraction – Myogenesis**

**Introduction:**

An Exercise for the students to understand the science behind the architectural columns designed by one of the greatest Architect Antonio Gaudi. Mark Burry as a current architect who figured out the logic behind the columns has helped us to replicate the same logic into different designs executed by the students.

**Procedure:**

- All the Students where taken to Sagrada Familia for a detailed guided tour by Mark Burry himself.
- The students in this workshop where explained about the logic behind all the columns in Sagrada Familia.
- Once they understood the Logic Behind these columns they where taught a grasshopper script which can help them create the same logic with different designs.
- After the Design was ready, profile to create the individual shape where laser cut and the Students where given the whole machine which can replicate the logic behind the column.
- Here, the Students have to use the Plaster of Paris to design the column.
- With the help of the Profile generated in the Grasshopper they can shape the column using the machine designed by Mark Burry to replicate the column of Gaudi.
- The Students have to use three types of plaster solution for the finishing of the column to happen.
- The Column after being made are left to dry for at least three to four days.
- As the column drys up the students are supposed to sand it for a smother finish.
