Relational Geometries

Digital design techniques are commonly taught in schools of Architecture, which are invested in computer controlled fabrication equipment, such as laser cutters, milling machines and rapid proto-typers. However, while there are many architects using digital tools, and fabricators using computer controlled machinery, there remains a gap between the designers of the projects and the fabricators who build them. This research aims to fill that gap and provide architects with the expertise to better realise complex architectural designs.
