Craft, Technology and Computation

ProtoRobotic FOAMing

We expand traditions of making towards new techniques that integrate manual craft, computational design, digital fabrication and advanced robotic technologies, often in hybrid relationships. Our research is supported by an excellent suite of workshops and digital manufacturing facilities, as well as the expertise of outstanding craftsmen.

Aesthetic and material innovation is paralleled by scholarship that theorises and contextualises digital approaches to production and critically examines the value of building technologies in architectural history, the profession and society at large.
