Term Fall 2011
Class ARCH 571
Class Title Digital Fabrication
Description Born from industry, digitally-driven fabrication technologies are poised to revolutionize the way that designers imagine and construct space. Digital tools have escaped the factory floor and now taunt the imaginations of architects from the basements of academia. No longer relegated to architectural novelty, digital fabrication will play an increasingly important role toward the conceptualization, manipulation, and assembly of the built environment.
Arch 571, Digital Fabrication, exists primarily as a hands-on, technique-based introduction to material fabrication and construction through the use of digital tools. More specifically, the course serves as a platform to familiarize students with existing methodologies of digital fabrication while fostering an environment dedicated to [1] advanced material research, [2] iterative empirical experimentation, [3] and complex geometric manipulation.
