Through new methods in designing objects and spaces, new challenges in making and creating the objects and spaces arise. Digital design and fabrication promises new ways of designing, different, cheaper and faster but are these predictions real promises or are they are misleading the future designer and builder? The studio sees only one way to get an answer to the questions raised above – through digital making! Consequently the studio engages in designing an installation using digital and parametric design tools, and building the outcome as a 1:1 mock-up and answering the question by exploring what is possible and what are only promises. A project with this complexity requires experts from different disciplines. It is not only about the design but also about managing the project, understanding the constraints of construction methods and materials, structural and building regulation and their demands and understanding details from an aesthetic to fabrication point. This is digital making of the 21st century.
