Research summary

Codifying and Fabricating an Invisible Architecture
Paul King

Supervisors: Professor Bob Sheil and Dr Jan Kattein

Paul's research explores the undervalued, un-codified and invisible components in contemporary architectural production. He identifies current notions of beauty and perfection in digital methods of design and fabrication and seeks to define the extent and value of error and imperfection within these methodologies. 

Predominantly operating within the invisible space of tolerance, Paul's research proposes a new way to view the connection between the drawn and the made, considering potential creative forces as the flaw.
