Research
Our research focuses on additive digital fabrication techniques used for building non-standardized architectural components. Simply put, additive fabrication can be described as a three-dimensional printing process. By positioning material precisely where it is required, we are able to interweave functional and aesthetic qualities into a structure. We can thus “inform” architecture through to the level of material. Our aim is to develop criteria for a new system of structural logic which can be applied to architecture and that is intrinsic to digital fabrication. We started with modules such as bricks as a basic material and are now expanding the spectrum to include fluid materials.
