Workflow: Designing Industry

Building Science + Technology

Fall 2012

Scott Marble, instructor

Schools pioneered the first digital revolution in architecture through exhaustive formal experimentation and elaborate visualization techniques that greatly expanded the conceptual framework of design. While this was occurring, the construction industry was focused more on streamlining the manufacturing and building processes with early versions of building information modeling and CNC technologies. It is only recently that these differing concerns have begun to merge into a more coherent workflow. The focus on this seminar was to foreground the potential and urgency of a younger generation of architects to begin engaging the next digital revolution in architecture that is centered around innovative processes to integrate design, fabrication, construction and building life cycle through rethinking the organization of industry and the relationships between the key disciplines.
