The Bartlett School of Architecture





FABRICATE was an International Peer Reviewed Conference, Publication and Exhibition hosted by the Bartlett School of Architecture on 15-16 of April 2011 in London. It brought together pioneers in design and making within architecture, construction, engineering, manufacturing, materials technology and computation. Discussion on key themes included: how digital fabrication technologies are enabling new creative and construction opportunities, the difficult gap that exists between digital modelling and its realisation, material performance and manipulation, off-site and on-site construction, interdisciplinary education, economic and sustainable contexts.

FABRICATE emerged as the first in a series of focused events from the highly successful 'Digital Architecture London' Conference and 'Digital Hinterlands' Exhibition in September 2009. Organised by The Bartlett School of Architecture, UCL, FABRICATE frames discussion around the presentation of built or partially built works by individuals/collaborators in research, practice and industry.
