This execution solution starts from the Curved Wall generated in Van Eyck’s sculpture museum. This works is located in the entrance hall of the Architecture Department in South China University of Technology, with an attempt to employ the digital controlled machine, a significant tool under the digital situations, to materialize the workshop for the digital form. There exists a crucial design conversion between this generated form and the construction. First of all, smooth curved walls are turned into contour line walls. Then, within the maximum size of the selected mid-density boards, the curved walls are divided into sections and therefore transparent and continuous textures are formed. After this, based on the principle that two points can be located for every two boards, steels are located in the preset positions vertically between the conjoint of two boards. This makes the steels reveal their usages of both
stabilization and positioning. However as the curved walls are showing changing faces at the cut level, the steels in the middle are placed bit by bit.
