Unit of study_

Advanced Fabrication - ARCH9109

Year - 2018

This design elective bridges the domains of design theory and advanced fabrication practices. In this unit students will make complex and polished objects using the fabrication tools in the DMaF lab, that demonstrate and/or embody design ideas intrinsic to their formulation. The unit is divided into two halves: additive fabrication and subtractive fabrication. Each half will be accompanied by lectures on the technical knowledge related to these fabrication processes, and lectures on the theoretical premises and associations generated by the internal logic, and expressive languages of each fabrication type. Tutorials will also be divided between technical developing machine control, and design tutorials in which students will develop control of the design trajectory and expressive languages.
