Between the folds – Towards a material revolution – NXT BLD London, June 2019
The age of digital information is rapidly evolving into its next stage- the transformation of matter. How can digital information give life to novel applications and uses of industry standard materials? A complete paradigm shift of the relationship between man, machine and material is needed as we enter a new industrial revolution. The talk shares some of the office’s work using unique algorithms for design-to-fabrication workflows that try to challenge the classic perception construction. From mathematics of Origami to dynamic finite element analysis, the office works to bridge between the digital and physical with a mission to bring freeform design and customization to the mainstream construction sector.

NXT BLD is organised by AEC Magazine and brings next generation architecture, engineering and construction technologies to life in an exclusive conference and exhibition. These emerging technologies facilitate new ways of designing, enhancing the use of 3D models, applying Artificial Intelligence (AI) and offering new possibilities in digital fabrication and construction.
NXT BLD 2020 will take place at the Queen Elizabeth II Centre, London on 9 June, in association with Lenovo.
