Philip Yuan Lecture: Fabrication matters

Community Event

Philip F. Yuan presently specializes in researching the following topics: Integrating Traditional Local Materials with Computational Design technology, the Robotic New Craftsmen and Prototyping the Future Digital Architecture Factory. In this lecture he will discuss several projects from his office in order to address the problem of re-discovering the "local" in our globalized digital world. The lecture will focus on the methodology Professor Yuan and his team from Tongji University use for bringing computational design and digital fabrication to projects across China where they use local materials and local design concepts in innovative ways.
