The course will conduct a critical analysis of digital fabrication and associated emerging technologies for architecture with respect to structural systems. This will be addressed specifically trough the analysis of a developed surfaced and the implications of panelization. This will be accomplished by full engagement with parametric modeling, Computer Numeric Control (CNC) and 3D rapid prototyping (3D printing) systems. Students will design, prototype and fabricate their projects at various scales. The content of the course will give students an understanding of digital tectonics and assembly. The applied projects will be supplemented with readings and discussions of significant precedents and techniques.
