DIGITAL FABRICATION STUDIO is an immersive cross-disciplinary, technology, research and process orientated, architecture studio.
DFS is concerned with the increasing convergence and interaction between creative disciplines, engineering, and emerging technologies.
DFS will be questioning the fabric of things from the nanoscopic to the macroscopic level, with the objective to reveal the architecture of things.
DFS relies on the principles of collective intelligence and collaborative processes
DFS will function as a Workshop, and a production environment; students are therefore expected to produce as much as possible work in real time, during the sessions.
The Studio will be operating as a media and technology think tank.
Students will be asked to present, discuss and document their work at every session.
Students will be working individually during the whole semester.
