Summary "RESEARCH BACKGROUND
These various pavilion projects use revolutionary generated forms, facades and diverse materials (glass, steel and composites) in entirely new structural ways, requiring unique processes and special methodologies to realise them.

RESEARCH CONTRIBUTION
The complexity and diversity of each pavilion form required diverse generative software systems, and employing digital tools and three-dimensional printing technology shared with RMIT's Aerospace School of Engineering. The use of a multi-package system enabled Kovac to research, design and innovate, producing sophisticated, elegant structures of varying scales. Comprehensive cross-platform project strategies and custom solutions enabled the realisation of the design construction. The various functional, environmental and sustainable aspects of the pavilion projects are equally complex, with novel designs that accommo date practical and planning needs as well as significant visual and emotional responses.

RESEARCH SIGNIFICANCE
The projects are developed with the understanding that the building design research exposes and informs future designers, clients, contractors, engineers, planners, project managers, fabricators, and other stakeholders in the process of creating digital design for the built environment. The pavilions used the digital tools as a master system for the work. A single unified three-dimensional software platform with multiple tools allowed Kovac to creatively evolve digital 3D models while retaining the original design intent. A high level of concurrent design automation was introduced, which increased the potential for evolving highly complex forms and the techniques required to understand the exponential growth of architectural production."
