Digital Fabrication Workshop

Designer in Residence - Education Lab

The year 2 Sustainable Urban Design and Engineering students specialising in architecture attended a week long Digital Fabrication workshop conducted by Raul Kalvo from CityForm Lab as part of the student's integrated learning experience through the Designer in Residence program. In this workshop they learnt a new digital modelling software, Rhinoceros, and programming language, Python, to enable them to design complex forms and surfaces. The students gained an understanding of the entire process of design, fabrication to assembly. With the knowledge and skills gained from the workshop, they undertook a design and build exercise to fabricate a 1:1 scale paper based structure. This knowledge was further used to design a live project on campus - 'A Folly to Celebrate' to commemorate the Graduation Ceremony 2016.
