Robotic Fabrication in AEC

Computational AEC Melbourne 24 September 2020 | 6th meeting

NCCR Alumnus Alexander Walzer presents DFAB HOUSE as part of a discussion on streamlining design processes. Part of Computational AEC Melbourne 24 September 2020.



Keeping tabs on DFAB HOUSE

DFAB HOUSE may have opened and now be an occupied house, but that doesn’t mean that the project is over. Far from it. In fact, the house is now in the first phase of longitudinal studies to see just how well digitally fabricated objects hold up. Initial results are in, and they show that actually,…
