Digital Fabrication

Construction is the art and technique of manufacturing buildings and infrastructure. Nowadays, new building construction techniques are being researched and are feasible thanks to advances in 3D printing and the increasing use of ecological construction materials. These new trends promote a sustainable approach to construction that values and contributes to the intelligent growth of urbanism.

Digital fabrication generates an innovative professional dynamic in which the designer directly involved in the manufacturing and prototyping process, which has a positive impact on the design process. This concept is completely changing the industry, not only from the technical perspective, but also business models. This type of fabrication includes 3D printing technologies, laser cutters, and CNC machines.
