2. Bespoke digital prefabrication

Bespoke Digital Prefabrication addresses the future of industrial prefabrication in architecture. Prefabrication in construction has a long-standing tradition, but its augmentation using digital fabrication technologies allows for highly customisable and digitally integrated design and building processes. Industrial factory settings are clearly suited to the future deployment of advanced technologies due to their protected and structured environments, however until now this sector is largely under-developed. Integration of digitally adaptable design and fabrication technologies are now demonstrating great potential as disruptive innovations that improve quality, efficiency and reduce construction waste.VisionEnable bespoke, large-scale digital prefabrication.Research challenges• Develop new technologies for bespoke digital prefabrication at 1:1 building component scale.• Develop resource-efficient material systems and joining methods.• Develop tools and technologies to facilitate integrated design and fabrication
